Lake Forest Drive disturbance result of 'swatting' hoax

Multiple police units were called to a Huntsville subdivision Tuesday night in what was ultimately ruled to be a hoax. Calls first went out for emergency response around 6:30 p.m. to a home on Lake Forest Drive. Road blocks were put up at the scene and residents were not allowed to leave or enter the area during the incident. Police confirmed later in the evening that the call was the result of what a sergeant on the scene called "a cruel hoax." Tonight Charles Molineaux talks to the homeowner who says as soon as he saw the police cars, he knew exactly who was behind the hoax.

Police are still looking for the person responsible for a shooting this afternoon in Harvest. Authorities responded to Lockport Drive  just after 4 p.m. They found one person  was shot inside a vehicle. No word on the name of the victim. 

The man convicted of 6 counts of capital murder was sentenced today to 6 consecutive life sentences. Zakkawanda Moss will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the killings. Coming up tonight at 10, we'll have a recap of the emotional day inside the Lincoln County courtroom and hear from the family of the victims.

Join us for these stories and more tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10

I'll see you then.
