    There is a heavy police presence on Applewood Drive in Waterford.

    Police responded to 5 Applewood Drive in Waterford around 10 a.m. on Tuesday after receiving several reports of gunshots, but said they have found nothing suspicious.

    Police, State Troopers and a SWAT team responded, surrounded the home and found no one inside, but they do not believe this is a case of so-called “swatting,” in which someone calls in a false report and sends a massive police presence to an unsuspecting resident’s home.

    Police said, based on several calls they received, that some sort of shot or shots were fired, and they are investigating where they came from.

    Two neighbors were evacuated while police responded, but there is no danger to the public, according to police.

    Police are in the process of clearing the scene, but the road remains closed as of 1:15 p.m. as police break down equipment
