CARROLL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Police say they've had enough.
They now want to pursue felony charges against a 12-year-old boy, because of a 911 call, saying he had been shot.
Turns out, it was a prank call, and police in Carroll County say it was the seventh such call the boy had made, since May.
In this case, the caller also claimed a second person had been shot then hung up.
So crews sent a million dollars worth of emergency aid to the scene, only to realize there never was a shooting.
"We actually had two helicopters in the air and of course about a half dozen sheriff's officers and police officers," said Carroll County Paramedic J.P. Narvin.
"You're talking law enforcement is driving very quickly. You're talking EMS is responding very fast, which not only puts emergency service people at risk, but the community at risk," said Carrollton Police Chief Michael Willhoite.
Police had a meeting with the boy over the summer after they say he made six prank calls to 911, between May and June. The calls stopped, until this month.
The boy could be charged with falsely reporting an incident and improper use of a government system.
