NYC ‘Person of Interest’ Set Shut Down When Prop Guns Spook Residents (Report)

New York City police shut down the CBS drama “Person of Interest” set Wednesday after worried residents believed a choreographed gun battle was the real deal.

TMZ reports that authorities responded to emergency calls after bystanders saw actors holding prop firearms near 47th St. and 5th Ave. Since production began before NYPD supervisors had arrived, the outdoor production’s permit was yanked and the show had to stop filming.

CBS did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
