Los Angeles police found no evidence to support a report of a shooting Friday afternoon that caused officials to begin evacuating Pacoima Middle School, authorities said.
Officers were deployed to the 9900 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard about 2:40 p.m. after getting a call from a man who claimed he shot two people in a home near the school, according to the LAPD.
The officers turned up nothing, said LAPD spokeswoman Rosario Herrera.
"There was no evidence of a crime," she said.
Herrera said she had no further information on the caller.
