GERMAN TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – The suspect in a standoff in German Township pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.

Police say the 16-year-old called 911 and told dispatchers he shot his girlfriend and tied up her parents in the bathroom.

The call was a hoax. No one was actually in the home with the teen.

He is being held at the Juvenile Justice Center charged with creating a panic.

His next court appearance is August 12.
