SAN FRANCISCO — A film crew shooting a robbery scene without a permit at a liquor store in San Francisco's Cole Valley neighborhood Wednesday almost caused a different kind of shooting by police who thought the robbery was real, a police captain said.

The incident was reported at 10:48 a.m. Wednesday at Alpha Market, located at 960 Cole St., said police Capt. Denis O'Leary from the department's Park Station.
