    Film shoot nearly turns deadly when staged robbery brings out real cops

    A movie shoot in California nearly turned deadly when cops mistook a staged robbery for a real one.

    Cops in Glendora, just east of L.A., rushed to Classic Coffee Thursday morning after someone reported seeing two armed suspects in hoodies and masks enter the coffee shop.

    Officers went in and ordered the "suspects" to drop their weapons.

    One man complied, but cops said they nearly shot the other man in the process of disarming him.

    The cops determined that the weapons were realistic-looking replicas of a handgun and an AR-15 assault rifle.

    Coffeeshop manager Jonathan Sperling said he was the one who'd given the film crew permission to shoot inside, and it never occurred to him to notify police or obtain a permit.

    "The actions of all involved nearly resulted in Glendora officers using justified but tragic deadly force," police said.

    Tragedy was averted thanks to the "professionalism, excellent training and skill level" of the officers.
