Police in south suburban Park Forest are investigating a prank that kept officers busy for several hours last night.

SWAT team officers surrounded a house on the 400 block of Shabbonna Street after a caller said he had shot his mother there.

But it turned out the people that lived there were not home.

Police say they found them and that they are okay.

Officers say they're investigating the false report as a criminal matter.
