JANESVILLE - Police officials say a reported shooting and standoff on East Racine Street in Janesville on Sunday was apparently a hoax. After police cordoned off streets for blocks around a duplex rental property at 329 E. Racine St. and sent in a swarm of officers and a SWAT team, police found the residence empty. The situation began when emergency crews responded at 4:20 p.m. Sunday to the residence for a report of a gunshot victim and a hostage situation.
