Earlier this date, there was a social media post reporting an incident that occurred near Bernhart's Dam in Muhlenberg Twp. The post falsely reported that there was an "active shooter" incident occurring and to avoid the area. While there was police activity in the area this morning, please be assured there was no shooting incident and no cause for alarm.
