Someone Dressed as Stormtrooper Caused Lockdown in Kansas

Someone dressed as a stormtrooper from Star Wars caused quite a disturbance in the force in Kansas when a local business went into lockdown at the mere sight of this strangely-dressed figure.

Christopher Burns was dressed as a stormtrooper to shoot an online video, but a business owner noticed the gun he was holding and, worried it was an AK-47, called the police.

The business went into lockdown and police showed up at the scene. It turned out to just be an honest mistake; Burns said afterwards he was “a little bit surprised that someone would see a Stormtrooper and fear when you know it’s been around since the 70′s.”

And so, public safety been quelled has.
