Report of man shooting girlfriend in Greensboro turns out to be a prank


GREENSBORO, N.C. — A report of a man shooting his girlfriend at a Greensboro apartment complex¬†Wednesday evening turned out to be a prank, police say.

Police responded to the Arbor Ridge Apartments around 10 p.m. after the suspect called them to say he shot girlfriend and that he was going to shoot police next.

Because the call came from a Skype number, officers could not trace the exact location of the call.

Police swarmed the apartments and went door to door looking for the domestic incident.

After an investigation, police discovered there was never a domestic situation and the call about the shooting turned out to be a prank call.
