SWAT team practice frightens neighborhood

There were fears over a Selma SWAT operation that turned out wasn't real. The problem is no one living in the area of the exercise knew it was fake.

Residents of a Johnston County public housing complex say they didn't know that officers were training students from the local community college.

Residents say they should have been informed about the fake guns. The public housing authority told ABC11 that the training has been happening for years and they are not required to notify anyone.

We asked the director to go on camera but she said she was "unavailable."
