SAN FRAN HAMILTON PANIC: NEVER YELL 'FIRE' IN A CROWDED THEATER... OR GUN*

YOU SHOULD NEVER YELL FIRE IN A CROWDED THEATER IN THE 20TH CENTURY..
In our modern times that warning now should be gun..

KPIX in San Francisco reporting.

There was mass chaos in the audience at the Friday night performance of Hamilton at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco after someone confused a woman’s medical emergency with an active shooting and shouted “gun!”
CBS Sacramento reporter Shirin Rajaee was watching the show when, she reports, people ducked and ran out of the theater.

Police told Rajaee that a woman was having a heart attack when someone in the theater saw her and thought she had been shot.

In a matter of seconds, nearly everyone in the theater took cover, Rajaee reports.
During the ensuing chaos, some people even jumped into nearby police patrol cars, fearing an active shooting was in progress.
The theater was evacuated and a woman was taken out in an ambulance.
