Back page: Voiceover recording of man with gun scares office workers

NEWBURGH, N.Y.(AP) — An upstate New York production company’s recording of a man threatening people with a gun has sent people scurrying for cover at its office building. Police say office workers in the City of Newburgh reported hearing the voice in their building on Monday afternoon.

Police SWAT teams quickly converged on the scene. The surrounding buildings were evacuated. Traffic was blocked.

Police searched the building and discovered one of the office suites housed a production company that was doing voiceovers by playing recordings of a man threatening people with a gun.

Police say the production company staff had left the building just before police arrived.
