Police are looking for a group of people accused of causing a panic by faking an active shooter situation inside a Bucks County Walmart.
Police responded Saturday shortly before 2 p.m. to a Walmart on the 100 block of E. Street Road in Warminster Township after a call about someone shouting for people to get on the floor.
Officers on the scene spoke to shoppers, who told them four or five males walked into the store and began shouting “active shooter,” “gun” and “get down on the ground,” according to the Warminster Township Police Department.

Police said they were accompanied by a female and drove away in a silver or light blue Nissan Rogue with license plate No. KCT-3096.
The group faces potential terroristic threat and reckless endangerment charges.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Warminster Township police at 215-672-1000.
