Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies were called from Lake Havasu City to a Kingman location after receiving reports of multiple shootings Thursday afternoon. The incident was later deemed a hoax by investigators.
At about 1:25 p.m., sheriff’s dispatchers received reports that a man shot multiple victims at a residence in the area of Valle Vista, and had threatened to shoot any responding law enforcement officers. A Mohave County Sheriff’s SWAT team was called to the location, and cautiously approached the residence, according to the sheriff’s report.
When deputies arrived, they found all occupants in the residence alive, well and unarmed. Investigators determined the initial call to be a hoax, and the case remains under investigation.
