Hundreds of shoppers at the Forum Shopping Center on Bend's east side found themselves in a "lockdown" as police receive a call from a woman, reporting there was a man in the parking lot drunk and waving a gun, threatening to shoot people.

 

Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports it happened last night around 7:45 p.m.

 

After receiving the call, Bend Police alerted the stores in the Forum Center to lock their doors and keep shoppers inside for safety.

 

After a half-hour search, police did not find the possible suspect and gave the "all clear" to the businesses.

 

Right now, police believe the call may have been a hoax and they are working to find the woman who called.  If found, she would be charged with making a false police report.

 

If you have any information about this incident, contact Bend Police.
