Police say the person who made a hoax 911 call to Alpharetta police on Thursday reported three people, including a child, had been shot inside a residence in the posh Country Club of the South.
The caller also demanded $30,000 ransom for a woman he said was being held hostage inside the home, according to a Johns Creek police incident report obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution Friday.
The caller claimed he was calling from inside a home in the 7000 block of Carlisle Lane. According to the incident report, “no additional information was obtained as the call was dropped,” during the transfer from Alpharetta police to Johns Creek police, which has jurisdiction.
Johns Creek police immediately dispatched multiple well-armed police units to the subdivision that Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown once called home.
