GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Montana family watching their favorite TV show on Sunday evening got the scare of their life.

After receiving a 911 call from a neighbor who heard “screaming from a house about someone having a gun,” officers responded and surrounded the Montana home, according to notes obtained by the Great Falls Tribune.

“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 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.
