By Star Journal Staff
UPDATE from the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office:
The involved person is a child under the age of 12 and with the cooperation of the parents, the Department of Social Services will be addressing the incident with the child.
An apparent false alarm at the Tesomas Scout Camp this morning is under investigation by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Captain Terri Hook stated in a press release that the 911 Communications Center received four 911 calls from the scout camp area. No information was provided by the caller, but during one of the calls the caller stated someone had a gun and hung up.
When the 911 center attempted to call the number back, no one answered.
Law enforcement notified staff at the scout camp and the camp was locked down. The incident drew a “large response” from law enforcement. Upon arriving to the area where the phone call was made, it was determined there was no emergency.
