At 3:53 p.m. today (Monday, March 11, 2019), the La Palma Police Department received a single report of a shooting that had just occurred at a home on Del Sur Circle. Officers responded to the location and requested assistance from both Cypress and Garden Grove police departments. A search of the home confirmed that a shooting had not occurred. Based on information at the scene, officers eventually determined that the call was a hoax or what is known as a “swatting” incident.
The La Palma Police Department is investigating this incident and will provide additional information in the near future.
