Robbery Turns Out To Be Just An Act

It started out as a robbery call to a gas station on Winchester road, but ended with a movie producer yelling cut!
Just after 11p.m. Saturday, an off-duty officer saw what she thought was an armed robbery in progress at B and R's Food Mart.
Lexington Police quickly responded, with more than a dozen officers with guns drawn and entered the store; a few people were even handcuffed.
But, minutes later it was realized a movie crew was shooting a robbery scene for an independent film.
All actors and staff were released.
