911 caller claimed to be man who killed his family, homeowner says
ORLANDO, Fla. – Police surrounded a home in an Orlando neighborhood Monday after a possible swatting call.
SWAT members were called to a home along Elm Forest Lane.
The homeowner, Carlos Matos, told News 6 that someone else called 911 and said he was barricaded inside the home after killing his family.
Matos said police put his 82-year-old father in handcuffs as a precuation.
Matos said he believes he know who made the call.
Orlando police said detectives determined that the hoax 911 stemmed from a dispute over a PayPal transaction.
Authorities said they are trying to identify the person who made the call.
