A high police presence in Wildomar Friday afternoon turned out to be a whole lot of nothing.
Walnut Street in Wildomar was closed at Cherry Street after deputies responded to calls of several shots being fired at a residence in the 23000 block of Walnut Street shortly after 3 p.m.
Deputies were on scene with assault rifles and a sheriff’s department helicopter was called out. Officials from Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department were also standing by.
A resident in the neighborhood said the home in which the shots were allegedly fired sees a high level of police activity and people coming and going.
There's back and forth "all hours of the day and night," said Nathaniel Lutz, 32. "The cops are constantly there."
But Deputy Albert Martinez of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said Friday's incident was spurred by a male at the residence who made erroneous calls to authorities about shots being fired.
At press time, the deputy reported no arrests had been made but the caller was being evaluated; Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department had cleared the scene. Deputies were still investigating, however.
There were no injuries, Deputy Martinez said.
