Johnson County charged Morayonla Olubori Sholaja, of Grandview, Missouri, with one count of giving a false alarm. He is accused of calling 911 with a false claim of an “active shooter” in Overland Park.

The Kansas City Star reports Sholaja is accused for calling 911 dispatchers Nov. 7 and saying an armed man was threatening people.
