A 911 call reporting a murder turned out to be a false alarm for cops in Wyoming, Minnesota. 

The incident unfolded at 10:41 a.m. Monday when a 911 caller from inside a home in the 26700 block of Goldman Ave. said her father was shot and killed by a man who was still inside their home. 

Officers from the Wyoming Police Department arrived at the scene to the "frantic 911 female caller" sprinting out of the house while carrying a baby. She told police that her 57-year-old father had been shot and was dead inside, and reiterated that the shooter was still in the house along with his 74-year-old mother. 

The Chisago County SWAT team was called to the scene and made entry into the townhouse, where they found no shooter, no victim and no 74-year-old woman. Police determined that the 911 caller's claims were "fabricated." 

The townhouse complex was evacuated during the incident, but residents were allowed to go back home once police realized there as no danger. 

The police department continues to investigate while exploring possible charges against the 911 caller for making false statements to police.
