Some heavy police presence in the 400 block of 19th Street South in La Crosse found a completely different scenario than the 911 call that led them there.

The call came into dispatch at 2:05 PM that the caller had shot and potentially killed two adults in the residence where police responded.

A perimeter was set up and armored vehicles and the emergency response team breached the house, only to find no evidence of a shooting.

La Crosse Police say the call sounded domestic in nature.
