Police: Daingerfield homicide report was hoax

Posted: Updated:
DAINGERFIELD, TX (KLTV) -

On Wednesday, police and SWAT members responded to a call reporting that there had been a homicide. The location of the homicide, the caller said, was in the 800 block of Carpenter Street in Daingerfield.

After they were unable to make contact with anyone in the home, police swarmed the home; a flashbang grenade was thrown in as a SWAT team stormed a house.  It turned out that the home was empty.

"No one or no person was found inside the home," Police Chief Tracy Climer said.

Thursday, Daingerfield police told us that they have captured that suspect, 53-year-old Donald Adams, who told them it had all been a hoax. He has been arrested on charges of false alarm or report.
