ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orlando community center was placed on lockdown after an apparent shooting scare.

The incident happened at the Dr. Smith Neighborhood Center at 1723 Bruton Blvd.

Police said a young man ran into the center looking beaten up.

A bystander saw a person on Bruton Boulevard get out of a vehicle with a gun as if looking for someone, then left the area, police said. Witnesses thought it was a shooting, so the center went into a lockdown and the Orlando Police Department was called.

Police said they found no indication of a shooting that actually took place.

The victim fled the center. Police said they have not made contact with the victim nor had any more calls for rescue.
