A Fayetteville man is facing charges after he told 911 operators someone allegedly shot at him.

Authorities said on Wednesday, 21-year old Jon Michael Mauldwin called 911 and claimed to have been involved in a shooting outside his Shadyside Lane home.

He allegedly said someone shot at him while he was wearing body armor, so he returned fire and hit the other person.

When authorities arrived at Mauldwin's house, they were unable to find any shell casings where the alleged shooting happened.

An investigation later determined that the round that hit Mauldwin's bullet proof vest was fired by his own .380 handgun.

Cumberland County Sheriff's Detectives charged Mauldwin with filing a false report with law enforcement officers and misuse of the 911 communication system. He has since been released on bond.
