‘Hampton Police are trying to unravel a huge mystery. Was there really a gunman at the East Pembroke McDonald’s around 2:30 Monday afternoon?
Around 2:30, police got the call that an armed gunman was inside the fast food restaurant.
Police say a SWAT team freed 12 employees and two customers believed to be held hostage for nearly three hours inside a Hampton McDonald’s by an armed man but never found a gunman.
No one was injured, and police are trying to figure out whether the man somehow got away or perhaps someone had perpetrated a hoax.’
