Brainerd police were called just after 9 p.m. Wednesday to a possible shooting on the 1700 block of Oak Street in Brainerd.

Brainerd Police Chief Corky McQuiston said officers responded and checked the residence and it was determined to be a false report. It was a duplex and the lower level residents were evacuated even after they told police they did not see or hear anything. The people in the apartment where it was reported to have occurred were safe and had absolutely no idea why someone would have made the call.

Police are investigated the call as a falsely reporting crime and for the misuse of 911 for emergency telephone calls.
