Cops Urgently Report What

Looks Like Mass School Shooting [AUDIO]

A deadly serious deputy made an urgent radio call to his dispatcher, sounding the alarm that 20 shots were fired near an elementary school ... and TMZ has the audio.

The incident went down in Wilmington, N.C. last week, when a TV production crew -- working on a Stephen King show, "Under the Dome" -- staged a shootout scene in a park near the school. The shots were fake, but no one clued in police or school officials ... and they treated it like the real deal.

Pretty scary.

That's mean to do. They didn't notify anyone because they new this would happen and wanted the publicity. Fvckers!

Props to the cop. Didn't panic, called it in and made sure the school was safe.

I think they dealt with what could have been another horror very calmly. But what do you bet all the cars rushing there were racking and twitching ready to return fire? Did any of them feel as disappointed as the first guy?

that happened in Chicago with Chicago Fire when they had a plane crash on a hwy. they had new reporters there and no one "running to help those people". And then it came back as oh this was a scene from a tv show.
