Officers with the Plainfield Police Department responded to an unspecified incident, but the department would not disclose any details about the matter “out of respect for the family involved” after social media posts claimed there was a shooting.
On Tuesday, the Plainfield Police Department posted on its Facebook page that it was “aware of social media posts regarding a shooting” Monday in the area of Thornberry Drive.
“We did respond to a residence in that area last night for an incident but out of respect for the family involved, we will not be providing any additional details," the Facebook post said.
"There was never any threat to the public,” the Facebook post said.
Plainfield police Cmdr. Anthony Novak said that, as of Wednesday, there was no indication of the incident “being criminal-related or any threat to the public occurring.”
“Out of respect of the family, we will not be providing any additional information, sorry,” Novak said.
When asked if there was an actual shooting, if anyone was injured in the incident or what type of incident the police responded to, Novak said “for the privacy and respect for the family involved, we will not be providing any additional information.”
