Actors With Fake Guns Nearly Shot By Police

Student filmmakers were nearly gunned down by police on Thursday while shooting a robbery drama in Glendora, California.

According to law enforcement officials, officers responded to a frantic 911 call from a woman who thought she was witnessing an armed robbery at Classic Coffee Cafe, unaware that it was all part of a movie.

“Officers entered the coffee shop and encountered an armed “suspect” with a handgun who did not follow the commands of officers to “drop the gun,” the Glendora Police Department said in a statement. “A second “suspect” dropped the AR-15 assault rifle on the ground when he saw officers.”

The students were apparently wearing bandanas and holding fake assault rifles and handguns, ABC News reports.

 

Glendora Police Capt. Tim Staabs said that no police report was filed because no crimes were alleged and no one was hurt.
