Panic at Disney Springs after false reports of gunshots


A fight broke out on Christmas night between patrons at Disney Springs’ Bongos Cuban Cafe. At 9:24pm, a fight started on the second floor of the restaurant that resulted in loud noises and reports of shots being fired. Orange Count deputies responded to the incident. Due to the reports of shots, crowds of people panicked and ran to get out of the area.

One guest, Peter Vazquez, said, “People started yelling, ‘gun, gun.’ At that point, I didn’t hear any shooting at all, but because people were running (and) I was with my 17-year-old daughter, I’m not taking any chances. At this point, I ran with the crowd. It was just like in the movies, you know, people were just running, falling.”

The deputies eventually determined the reports of shots to be unfounded. One person has been arrested for disorderly conduct.
