The Butte County Sheriff's Office was unable to confirm an account of shots being fired just south of the Gridley city limit Saturday morning.
A female caller reportedly told dispatchers around 8:30 a.m. that she saw another woman run into an orchard behind a mobile home park on Highway 99 near Hollis Lane.
When an ambulance arrived the caller allegedly told medics she also heard what she thought was a gunshot.
Deputies checked the orchard but were unable to locate anyone there.
They also spoke to other residents at the mobile home park and no one else reported hearing any gun shots.
