TOWN OF LISBON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office says "no actual threat existed," after a reverse 911 call was made in the Town of Lisbon Wednesday.
Officials say they received a 911 call around 2:08 p.m. from a man stating that a female neighbor had come to his residence reporting that someone was trying to kill her with a gun.
Police responded to the area of Lynwood and Avon Drive and located the caller and his female neighbor. The woman reportedly told officers that there were other residents inside her home who may be held at gunpoint.
