Brooklyn Subway Passengers Frantic Over Gun Scare

BROOKLYN (AP) -

A gun scare at a train station Saturday afternoon sent panicked passengers stampeding through the Brooklyn depot, with some losing shoes in the chaos.

Police responding to the Bedford Avenue station said no gun was found and there was no indication that shots were fired. But a woman on an L train approaching the station says passengers started stomping and yelling that someone had a gun. Another woman said her husband and 3-year-old ran from one end of the train to the other and everyone was screaming.

The MTA acknowledged the “frightening situation” in a tweet and says lost items can be picked up at the station or at Penn Station.
