EUGENE, Ore. -- Deputies are looking into the false 911 call placed Tuesday night that sent a north Eugene neighborhood into a frenzy.
Officers and SWAT teams responded to a report of someone being shot on Grove Street near North Eugene High School Tuesday night, but said they found no evidence of that being true.
Sgt. Carrie Carver with the Lane County Sheriff's Office said they don't know who placed the call and said the caller didn't leave a name.
Neighbors who live in the area are concerned and angry.
"Quite frankly, I'm pissed," said Heidi Bird, a neighbor. "As a citizen, as a taxpayer, I hate to see our tax money wasted like this. It's ridiculous."
Residents said officers were lining the streets and telling them to stay inside.
"It's pretty dangerous because when the cops come up and they're called to someone that has like an assualt rifle or something, they come ready for war," said Aaron Weinbeg, a neighbor.
Bird said it's rare for large amounts of police to be in her neighborhood.
"We don't usually have much of a police presence out here and it's pretty low crime so having this many show up and this much of a hub-bub is definetley unusual."
