COLLEGE HILL (FOX19) - A Cincinnati SWAT team cleared a scene outside a College Hill home early Monday after determining reports of a shooting and person possibly barricaded inside were unfounded.

Police said earlier Monday they responded to the 1400 block of Wittekind Terrace when the man called District 5 headquarters about 1:30 a.m. The district's lobby is closed, so the call automatically rang to District 4.

Police said they were unable to confirm anyone was shot inside the residence in the 1400 block of Wittekind Terrace.

They also said they have been unable to make contact with anyone at the home.

A police spokesman described the situation as an "unconfirmed barricade incident."

FOX19 NOW has a crew at the scene and will continue to update this story on air and all our digital platforms.
