Cops: Woman made false report of WC shooter

Officers had to evacuate tenants from an Ossining neighborhood near Sing Sing Prison after they say a woman falsely reported that a man was looking to shoot police officers in the area.

Investigators say the 911 call was placed Monday evening by a woman in a James Street building. Neighbors say the woman told police that the father of her baby was in Ossining and looking to shoot police officers, but officers say that when they found the man, he was neither in Ossining nor did he have a gun. The woman could now be charged with making a false report, and might possibly face other criminal charges.
