Fireball Above DTLA Not an Alien Invasion, Just a Film Shoot, Police Say

The Los Angeles Police Department would like residents to know that aliens are not invading.

The LAPD says a fireball that dashed through the sky over downtown Wednesday evening was part of a movie production.

The department tweeted a video of the fiery streak with the reassuring message that it wasn't a meteor or an alien invasion — "just a film shoot."

"This is Tinseltown after all," the tweet said.

The video was later removed from the LAPD tweet but several social media accounts still had images of the event posted.
