Subway passengers turn frantic over gun scare

NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a gun scare sent panicked passengers stampeding through a New York City subway station, with some losing shoes and tearing bags in the chaos.

Police responding to the Bedford Avenue station in Brooklyn around 1:20 p.m. Saturday say no gun was found and there was no indication that shots were fired.

A woman on an L train approaching the station says passengers in her car started stomping and running toward her yelling that someone had a gun.

Another woman said her husband and 3-year-old had to run from one end of the train to the other and everyone was screaming.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority acknowledged the "frightening situation" in a tweet and says lost items can be picked up at the station or a Penn Station lost and found.
