A false report of a multiple murder at a Hermosa Beach home Wednesday prompted more than 30 police officers from Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach to respond.

An anonymous call came at 2 p.m. claiming “multiple family members” had been killed at the home. The phone where the call came from could not be traced. The area surrounding the home was cordoned off.

It was determined the home was empty and all the supposed victims were safe and accounted for at different locations.

A criminal investigation is being conducted by the Hermosa Beach Police Department, said Sgt. Robert Higgins.
