    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.

    No one was hurt. Northlake Mall General Manager Phil Morosco said the store reopened after police checked the escalator to make sure no more bullets were lodged.

    Guns don't kill people, escalators do.

    That's because that's where they keep the good stuff.

    There is serious comedy here waiting to be tapped. . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
