Police in Macomb are trying to locate the owner of a phone from which a prank 911 call was made.

Officials say Wednesday a caller told 911 operators that a gunman was near the Western Illinois University campus in Macomb, Ill. That ended up being a phone prank, officials said.

The prank led to street closures and a robot was sent into a home.
