GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Montana family watching their favorite TV show on Sunday evening prompted a big response from police.

Police received a 911 call from a neighbor who said she heard “screaming from a house about someone having a gun,” according to police notes obtained by the Great Falls Tribune. Officers responded to a “disturbance possibly involving a gun” and surrounded the home.

“We had a whole bunch of guys on that one,” Great Falls Police Department Sgt. Brian McGraw told the paper.

Upon arrival, officers heard “loud talking” from inside the home. Officers then observed two adults and several children watching “a show about firearms” with two windows open near the TV.

According to police, the family was watching the midseason premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead, a drama about a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies.

The 911 call notes did not include a statement from the family.
