UMEA, Sweden, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Police responded to the sound of gunfire and screams at a Sweden apartment -- and found it came from a violent movie a couple were watching, officials said.
The couple had been watching the Swedish thriller "Gone" in their Umea apartment in northern Sweden when they heard pounding on the door and police yelling for them to open it, The Local reported.
"I couldn't believe it," the man told the Vasterbottens-Kuriren newspaper.
The couple asked what the officers wanted.
"The police said we should open the door otherwise they would break it down," the man said.
He said he walked to his balcony and saw three officers who appeared "ready to draw their weapons."
Turns out, a neighbor had called the police after hearing the gunfire and screams.
Police, realizing the sounds came from the movie, left and the couple resumed watching it.
