EUGENE, Ore.--The reports of a standoff on River Road were false, according to Eugene Police.

At about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Eugene Police received a report that a man was holding another man at gunpoint within a house near the corner of Rosewood and River Road.

Eugene Police Department units got to the home with an armored vehicle and a crisis negotiator, only to learn the call had come from another address on nearby Corliss Lane.

The investigation is ongoing and will likely result in charges against the caller.
