BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (WPRI) — A reported hostage situation at a home in Bridgewater early Tuesday morning appeared to be a “swatting” prank, police said.

Bridgewater police said they determined the call was a hoax and that no one was ever in danger.

Police said the incident involved a juvenile, and that detectives were actively investigating.

More information would be released later Tuesday, police said.
