According to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, a deputy responded to the 600 block of Pacific Avenue on Tuesday, after Denise Carolyn Carter, 45, reported the alleged incident. Upon further investigation, the deputy detected that Carter repeatedly varied her account of the incident.

After discovering that the person identified by Carter had no firearms, police said the investigating deputy concluded that Carter had fabricated the entire incident in an attempt to get the neighbor in trouble.
