WATCH: 'Swatting' hoax call leads SWAT, police to swarm Myrtle Beach house

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A door bell camera captured the dramatic moments a South Carolina man gave himself up to officers after someone made a 911 call that turned out to be a hoax.

Police in Myrtle Beach said this was an instance of "SWATTING," a fake emergency call to draw police or a SWAT team.

Monday night, investigators said someone called 911 claiming to be Robert McCord.

The caller told dispatchers he'd just shot his wife and was going to kill the rest of the people in the house.

From McCord's home surveillance cameras, you can see officers surrounding the house and McCord's brother-in-law walking out of the home with his hands up as officers shout commands.

"Follow my voice - keep on coming - keep your hands in the air - keep your hands in the air - keep your hands in the air - do you have any weapons on you," officers are heard shouting in the video.

McCord, who has worked for 20 years as a Reserve Police Officer said he made it clear he was not a threat.

"We're not angry at you, we're not mad at you," McCord said. "We're just on the wrong side of a bad call and we want to get this resolved as quickly as you do."

McCord, his wife, and his brother-in-law were the only ones in the house and none of them were hurt.

Police said they are trying to figure out where the call came from and who made it.
