Sidney police: no truth to social media post about shooting
SIDNEY - A social media post claiming a fatal shooting in Sidney has been determined to be a false report.
Sidney Police Chief Joe Aikens told News Channel Nebraska Sunday morning they have no reports nor has there been anyone admitted to Sidney Regional Medical Center with gun shot wounds.
The social media post claimed "several eyewitnesses, as well as other sources" reported a shooting and they "believe there was a person in the ER." They also claimed there may have been a death involved.
He says his officers and Cheyenne County dispatch never received a call about a shooting in town.
