A report of a woman shot inside a hotel in Highland Park was unfounded but prompted an emergency response Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The Highland Park Police Department and Highland Park Fire Department responded around 2:40 p.m. Saturday to the Courtyard by Marriott, 1505 Lake Cook Road in Highland Park.
A 911 caller reported a male subject was armed with a gun equipped with a laser and pointed it toward her back, according to fire department radio traffic.
The woman, who was in the hallway of the hotel, said she felt a burning sensation and the other subject had fled.
The fire department staged nearby while police officers responded inside to investigate.
Highland Park Deputy Police Chief William Bonaguidi told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that officers found no shooting had occurred.
Bonaguidi said the entire report was unfounded. He said the woman was uncooperative with officers who were investigating.
Surveillance video was reviewed and there was no evidence of a person with a gun, Bonaguidi said.
No charges are being pursued against the woman for false report of an offense.
