Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. -- Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene of what was originally reported as a shooting at an east Mesa home Thursday morning.

Few details were immediately available, but video from the scene did show crime scene tape strung up in front of the home in the area at Hawes and McDowell roads about three miles east of Falcon Field.

There were several MCSO vehicles on the scene.

According to Detective Aaron Douglas of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, it started with a 911 call in which a person with a "heavy Serbian accent" stated that his 19-year-old grandson had been shot.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they determined that was not the case. The grandson had actually been cut with an unknown object.

Douglas said the incident is being treated as an injured person call.
