False Report of Shots Causes Scare at Coney Island

Several people have been treated for minor injuries after a stampede at Coney Island.

People began fleeing from Luna Park on Sunday night after a false report of shots fired.  It’s unclear what the sound was that was mistaken for gun shots, but it caused a scare for those celebrating the holiday.

The incident happened two days after a false report of shots fired sent people running out of Penn Station.  In that situation, police used a Taser on a suspect.
