OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Panic broke out at a suburban Kansas City festival that celebrates pioneer history after festivalgoers falsely believed shots had been fired.

The Kansas City Star reports it was unclear what led some attendees to begin running and taking cover Saturday night at the Johnson County Old Settlers event in Olathe.

Police said Sunday that reports of gunfire weren’t substantiated. Amid the chaos, one woman fell and was hurt.
