Charlotte, NC -- Christmas shoppers were evacuated after a bullet dropped into a moving escalator fired at a North Carolina sporting good's store.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that a customer accidentally dropped several .22-caliber bullets on the escalator at Dick's Sporting Goods at Northlake Mall in Charlotte.

Police spokesman Bob Fey said the customer had just bought a box of bullets Tuesday and accidentally dropped them on the moving stairs. The back of one bullet was compressed by the escalator and fired.
