A passenger, who misheard what someone also riding on his Greyhound bus said, lead to police converging on a Kansas City bus station.
Police were called to the Greyhound Bus Station at 11th Street and Troost Avenue, just before 10 p.m. Friday. Passengers, those waiting to pickup passengers and employees, were evacuated from the station, until shortly after 10 p.m., when police cleared the scene.
Police had the area blocked off.
A viewer, called KCTV5, and said he was one of the many people being evacuated, and said people wearing Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives jackets were also inside the station.
Police said the incident was the result of a misunderstanding between two passengers. One man on the bus coming from Des Moines, IA, thought he heard two other guys say something about a bomb. The man texted his girlfriend, who called the police.
Police searched the bus and questioned the two people. Turns out one of them said something was "da bomb".
Once the scene was checked out to be safe, everyone was allowed to continue on their way.
