Officers responded to the Family Guidance Center at 724 N. 22nd Street this afternoon after someone reported what they thought was someone of a roof with a weapon.  We have no reports of any shots fired, and police officials tell us they believe the report to be unfounded.

Gary Hammond of the Center says an employee received a call from her husband saying their might be a shooter on a roof near his house.  The report led officers to the Family Guidance Center.  Hammond says as far as he knows it was a false report.

Hammond wants to complement the police.  “They were very thorough, extremely professional, and should be commended for their work,” he said.
