Stormtrooper with Plastic Gun Causes Lockdown in Kansas (Washington Free Beacon)

A man dressed in a “Star Wars” stormtrooper outfit and holding a plastic gun for a video shoot prompted a lockdown in Salina, Kansas on Monday.

It all was a false alarm, KAKE reports:

Maybe he found the droids he was looking for. In any case, a man dressed as a “Star Wars” storm trooper caused a brief lockdown at a Salina business yesterday.

KSAL News reports that around 1p.m. Monday, Salina police officers were dispatched to the report of a possibly armed man in the 100 block of South 7th Street.
