Two people detained after a motorist reported gunfire on Route 17 near the Bendix Diner have been released and police say the initial report was unfounded.

Route 17 southbound was closed in the area near the diner, but has since been reopened.
Two people were seen handcuffed at the scene, but were later let go.
