Joplin Police: No truth to rumors about Range Line shooter

(From the Joplin Police Department)

There are several Facebook posts about an alleged active shooter on Range Line shooting from a vehicle, resulting in our 911 center being flooded with calls.

Our officers responded to Hardee's, 812 S Range Line in reference to a shots fired call. There were no signs that anything occurred, and we couldn't determine that anything happened at all.

At this time there is no known threat and no shots are confirmed. Please call 623-3131 if you have saw something related to these reports.

Again, most importantly, there is no reason to believe that there is any danger to our community.
