Police officers in Old City who came across a shot-up car with exposed wiring inside yesterday were about to the call the bomb squad when they found out it was a movie prop.

Police saw the car riddled with bullet holes and its side windows shot out yesterday morning on Florist Street near 2nd. They also saw wires running from the trunk into the dashboard.

The officers were ready to close the street and call the bomb squad when a security guard told them it was for a film. The thriller "Safe," starring Jason Statham, wrapped Thursday night after shooting in the city in recent weeks.
