Deputies responded to a home in the Black Forest area Monday morning. They say they got a call reporting that somebody shot a woman and took the rest of the family hostage.

When the SWAT team got to the home the family living there had no idea what was going on.

The sheriff’s office says the person who made the call could be charged for false reporting.
