False Alarm Causes Real Panic

More Video...

BRYAN - Lots of commotion and chaos late Wednesday afternoon in Bryan over what turned out to be a false alarm.

Police tell us someone driving past the Valero on East 29th, just around the corner from KBTX, saw a man walk into the store with a bandanna over his face and thought he had a gun.

When the clerk saw all the police, she locked the doors and ushered everyone to the back.

Police shut down 29th from Autumn Circle to Carter Creek, creating quite a backup to start the commute home.

Turns out there was never a gun or a robbery. Other than a few panicked customers, everyone is okay.
