CINCINNATI — An off-duty police officer dropped a handgun in an Ohio theater, prompting an evacuation, according to officials.

The Milford Police Department, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and the Clermont County Sheriff's Office responded to the Cinemark Movie Theater in Milford at approximately 9:30 p.m. Friday.
