The Castle Rock Police Department continues to investigate following a hoax call.

On July 25, shortly before 8:45 a.m., CRPD received a call on a non-emergency number about a shooting that had just taken place at a home near the area of Eaton Street and Plum Creek Parkway. The caller also indicated they would shoot at police if they responded to the residence. Because of this information, a number of officers were dispatched to the area.

CRPD quickly determined the call to be a hoax. No shooting took place and there were no injuries found, but this remains an open investigation.
