    Emergency crews on scene at Georgetown's Loews Theatres Sunday night to evacuate the building.

    What caused all of the commotion inside Georgetown’s Loews Theatres? Investigators still don’t know the answer to that question.

    D.C. Fire and Rescue said someone yelled something inside the building Sunday night at about 10 p.m. That caused a panic inside a theater, and everyone took off running toward the door.

    Emergency crews evacuated the entire building as a precaution. According to D.C. police, one woman was hurt during the rush to the door.

    Investigators said the person who caused the commotion may have been drunk and tried to pull off a prank. No one was arrested.
