IRVING — Police in Irving now say that a homeowner who claimed to have opened fire at an intruder late Tuesday afternoon made a false report.
The man had told officers that he returned home to find another person in his house in the 2100 block of Cochran Street.
The homeowner, who was armed, said he fired a number of shots at the suspect.
Irving police dispatched a SWAT team and other manpower in an effort to track down the suspect, but investigators said the homeowner was later determined to suffer from mental health issues. He was taken to a hospital for observation and evaluation.
No one was hurt.
