Hoax shooting incident call at Hanover Town Hall

At approximately 6:25PM this evening the Hanover Police Department responded to Hanover Town Hall after our dispatch center received a call from a crisis hotline reporting that someone had potentially suffered a gunshot wound at that location.

Shortly after responding, officers were provided with an update stating the call was possibly a hoax & had been received by a crisis hotline from out of state.

Officers conducted a full sweep of the building & confirmed no one was present inside while also deeming it safe.

The Hanover Police Department takes these threats seriously and responds accordingly.

Hanover Police Department Detectives will be investigating this incident further but to be clear there is no threat at Hanover (MA) Town Hall.
