What police thought was a gun shot shattering a window of a bar turns out to be a rock.

This is seen in security footage from outside of JJ’s Pub on East 25th Street.

Around 11 o’clock Sunday night a teenage looking boy picks up a rock and throws it through JJ’s window.

Police originally were called to the scene for reports of a gun shot.

After reviewing the footage it’s clear it was just a rock,

The owner of the bar says he doesn’t usually experience situations like this at his pub.

If you have any information about the teenagers in the surveillance video call Erie Police.

JJ’s pub owner is offering a $100 reward for help identifying the suspects.
