Montana police responded to a disturbance possibly involving a gun. When they arrived, they learned it was just a family watching their favorite TV show.

Great Falls Police Department received a phone call on Feb. 14 from a local resident who heard  “screaming from a house about someone having a gun,” the Great Falls Tribune reported.

A second caller helped the seven responding officers locate the home.

Sgt. Brian McGraw said the officers surrounded the home and heard “loud talking” coming from inside and saw “flashing lights.”

The officers saw two adults and several children. They appeared to be watching “a show about firearms,” according to notes from the call.

It turns out the family was just watching the mid-season premiere of AMC’s "The Walking Dead," the popular drama based on life during a zombie apocalypse.

The call notes did not specify what the family’s reaction was to the police response.

“We had a whole bunch of guys on that one,” McGraw said.
