Authorities are investigating a “swatting” incident that put Michigan schools on lockdown.

Bath Township Police Department said a person online created a fake 911 call to get many local emergency personnel to respond to a home in the area Chandler and Sleight Roads, just north of East Lansing. 

Lt. Gary Smith told our affiliates at WLNS the person used a number blocking service and told dispatch a resident had just shot someone.

Area schools were put on lockdown as a protocol, but it has since been lifted.

Nobody was hurt and police are investigating the incident.
