Teens, adults call 911 because they thought incident was real
A church skit involving a fake gun went awry Wednesday night at Steamboat Christian Center leading youth and adults to duck under chairs and call 911. Steamboat Springs police Capt. Det. Bob Del Valle said officers began receiving calls around 9 p.m. Wednesday from people who had witnessed or heard about the incident. "Apparently the youth group was putting on a skit using an actor with a fake gun," he said. "Somehow the skit was overdone and the kids began hiding under chairs thinking the situation was real."
