    Police in Manchester, New Hampshire said no one was arrested following a SWAT team response on Friday.

    The SWAT team was called to an "active situation" in the area of Concord and Maple streets sometime before noon. Manchester Police Sgt. Brian O'Keefe said in an email at 12:40 p.m. that the situation was over.

    In a follow-up email, O'Keefe said "no arrests were made because no crimes were committed." He said a woman alleged that a crime had occurred at 279 Concord St. and she believed it to be a hostage situation. The SWAT team arrived at the scene, and three people were detained, but none were arrested.

    O'Keefe said the woman who reported the incident could face criminal charges for making a false report to law enforcement.

    School Superintendent Debra Livingston said Manchester Central High School was temporarily put into lockdown as a precaution.
