GREAT FALLS , Mont., Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Police in Montana responded to a neighbor's panicked 911 call to find a family in their home watching The Walking Dead.

Great Falls police surrounded the home with weapons drawn after responding to the call of a neighbor who reported hearing screaming and gunshots coming from a nearby home around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The officers reported hearing "loud talking" and saw "flashing lights" before finding two adults and several children watching "a show about firearms" with nearby windows open.

Police soon realized that there was no threat as the family was simply watching the midseason premier of AMC's zombie drama The Walking Dead, and no further action was taken.
