Police mistake movie for acutal robbery
LOWELL, MA (NBC) — Surveillance footage shows a masked man walking in to a convenience store in Lowell, Massachusetts...waving a gun around and point it at the store clerk's head.
The scene was so real that when someone walking by saw it they called the police who soon swarmed the business.
What the onlooker and police didn't know is that several college students were using the store to film a movie.
"They just ran in, I was on the ground in no time cuffed up," said Pat Farrell, who played the gunman.
