Apparently false report of man shot at 24th & Dearborn

A large number of police officers raced to the scene of 24th & Dearborn tonight after a cell phone caller to 911 reported a man had been shot and was down on the ground. According to radio reports, the caller told dispatchers “A dude has just been shot in the head.”

Police arrived within minutes but have so far not found a victim.

GPS coordinates placed the phone somewhere in the 700 block of 24th Ave South at the time of the call.

Update: No victim has been found after a big search. There was only a single call, and police now consider it to be a false report.
