    Dicks Sporting Goods evacuated

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Firefighters were called to Dick's Sporting Goods at NorthLake Mall Tuesday afternoon after some bullets were dropped into an escalator.

    The fire department received the call around 1:30 p.m.

    According to the general manager of the mall, a customer entered Dick's Sport Goods carrying some ammunition.

    The shopper accidentally dropped the ammunition while riding on the escalator. Some of the ammo lodged in the escalator and detonated. No one was hurt.

    Frefighters evacuated the store while firefighters searched for more ammunition that was dropped. The store reopened about an hour after it was evacuated.

    The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's bomb squad was also called to the scene to provide assistance.

    It's a good thing they didn't drop any 10mm rounds otherwise this would have been a body recovery, not a ammunition recovery.

    also, how come no one has stated the seemingly unlikelihood that this actually happened. if live ammo is crushed, will it pop off? sounds like what happened.

    "Agents from the regional office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms arrested the shopper for dischging an automatic weapon in public in violation of the National Firearms Act.

    'The fact that two rounds went off after being crushed by the escalator clearly demonstrates that this is an automatic weapon,' Special Agent John Smith said. 'We are currently disassembling the escalator to perform more testing.'"

    You snipped the part where he said it was basically a Gatling gun and would just keep mowing down single mothers and their babies as long as the power was on. :rofl:
