After hearing screaming and mentions of a gun from a neighbor's house, a concerned resident of Great Falls, Montana, called the cops on Sunday night.

Police arrived at the scene and surrounded the home, then realized the family inside was watching the mid-season premiere of "The Walking Dead," according to ABC affiliate WFAA.

“We heard someone screaming from a blue house about someone having a gun,” Sergeant Jim Wells of the Great Falls Police Department told ABC News today. “Basically we show up we can see a TV on inside and people talking.”

“We will usually hang back and observe before we make contact. The windows next to the TV were open.”

Sgt. Brian McGraw told WFAA “We had a whole bunch of guys on that one,” but it turned out they were just watching the popular zombie apocalypse show with the windows open.

The Great Falls Police Department said no report was filed for the incident after everyone turned out to be okay.
