SALINA, Kansas – A man dressed as a Star Wars Stormtrooper prompted a lockdown Monday in downtown Salina.

According to KSAL, the man was dressed as a Stormtrooper and a gun prompted a business lockdown near the 100 block of South 7th.

A business owner was working with a veteran, when they noticed outside their window a man carrying a gun.

The veteran thought that the gun might be an AK-47 rifle, and the business owner called police.

The business was advised to go into lockdown as multiple officers responded to the area.

Police tell KSAL News that it turned out to be an honest mistake, and there was no danger.

The person dressed in the Stormtrooper costume was apparently shooting video for a website.

Police informed the video makers of the consequences and let them go.
