Police: No gunman found inside theater

Posted: Updated:

The Austin Police Department and its SWAT Team  says after a search of a Pflugerville movie theater Monday morning, nobody was found inside. 

They had been called to the theater after reports that there were gunmen seen entering the theater. 

At around 3:45 a.m., a cleaning crew inside the theater claimed to have seen two suspects wearing all black and carrying "long" objects. The cleaning crew members were able to make it out of the theater safely. There has been no confirmation on whether or not the suspects actually had guns.

Authorities blocked the area around the movie theater while they searched the building.  

Police did not find any weapons or anyone inside the theater. 

Robots from the Austin Police Department bomb squad and K-9 units were helping the search.
