People flee theater over gun scare because someone opened a package on a store item
This is the kind of story you should be reading on The Onion or some other satarical site, not a real news story. :(
Next weeks story will probably be that someone is carrying an object in their hands, see their own shadow, and start yelling, "GUN!" :rolleyes:
BELLEFONTAINE – People fled a Bellefontaine movie theater in a panic Friday night after a theft suspect making noise resulted in people thinking he had a gun, according to police.
Officers responded to a report of a person with a gun at Chakeres Cinema 8 around 8:43 p.m. Friday.
Once on the scene, officers found a theft suspect who reportedly entered the theater with stolen items from a local store.
The suspect went into the dark theater to open packaging on the items, making a noise that caused people around him to “flee and panic,” said Lt. Christopher Marlow.
Other patrons started shouting that the man had a weapon, he added.
No weapon was observed by people at the theater and no weapons were found during the investigation.
