Michigan State Police Say Phony Active Shooter Calls Up

Michigan State Police say they’ve been flooded with false calls about active shooters, following mass shootings over the weekend. Lieutenant Mike Shaw says the calls have been about active shooters in several cities.

“We’re just again reminding people to remain vigilant all the time and be aware of your surroundings, but take some things you see on social media with a grain of salt,” Shaw tells the Michigan News Network.

“These reports are not accurate, and we did not have any shooter situations in Detroit, Grand Rapids, or Lansing.”

Shaw says if you are looking for the most accurate information, contact your local police or follow their social media.
