TERRIFIED audience members fled a theatre fearing an active shooter during a performance of Hamilton.

Panicked musical fans ran screaming from the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco in a state of “mass panic” when shouts of “gun” were heard inside, according to reports.

It is believed one person inside the theatre suffered a heart attack during the performance — which another audience member interpreted as them having been shot.

Images of the scene shared on social media show a large police presence gathered outside the theatre with a large crowd of people.

Joe Khalil, who said he was at the show, wrote online: “Our Hamilton show ended in a mass panic.

“Members of the audience started screaming and running, shouts of ‘gun’ could be heard.

“The entire theatre cleared out. Theatre staff tells us it was actually one person who suffered a medical emergency.

“Someone misconstrued the situation.”
