What police in Carteret County thought may be a terror threat turned out to be a big misunderstanding.

An SBI bomb squad was called into investigate two men of Jordanian descent.

Police say the men were taken to the hospital after an accidental gunshot left shrapnel in both of their legs.

It happened off Eastern Avenue in Beaufort.

A miscommunication led authorities to believe explosives may be in the home.

But after a search, no explosives were uncovered.
