A 21-year-old Paris man was taken into custody Wednesday after making a 9-1-1 call shortly before 11 a.m. to report that a Hispanic male had been shot in the head, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

Police officers responded to the 1900 block of East Cherry Street and searched the area but were unable to locate a victim. During the investigation, officers made contact with Santana Burris, 21, who admitted to calling 9-1-1 and said he made the incident up.

Burris was placed under arrest and charged with an abusive call to 9-1-1, along with possession of marijuana when officers located marijuana in Burris’ wallet.
