GTPD Media Release: Fictitious 9-1-1 Call to Avoid Motor Vehicle Stop Leads to Arrest

On April 4, 2022 at approximately 1:00pm the Gloucester Township Police Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call, reporting a shooting in progress. The caller stated a shooting was occurring at an apartment in the Millbridge Garden Apartment Complex located at 1341 Blackwood Clementon Rd. While officers were responding to the area, the caller provided several different apartment numbers. Officers established observation on the reported apartments and numerous attempts were made to contact the residents.

An investigation showed the cell phone number came back to Katelynne Hunter-Fisher. Officers and dispatchers recognized the caller’s information from a motor vehicle stop, which was in progress at the time of the initial 9-1-1 call. Officers verified that no shooting occurred at the Millbridge Apartment complex, and were able to locate the caller in Lindenwold. It was determined Katelynne Hunter-Fisher called in the false report in an attempt to distract the officer from completing the motor vehicle stop.

The accused was arrested for filing a false police report and obstruction of justice.
