Geneva police reported to a call of a "man with a rifle" in a residential neighborhood around 1:45 p.m. Monday, but the incident turned out to be kids trying to film a YouTube video. About three police units responded to the call in the 2100 block of Bent Tree Drive. “It was some kids using poor judgment,” said Geneva police Cmdr. Julie Nash.

No charges were filed.
