During intermission at a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof,” a man started shouting “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” sending some audience members fleeing out of fear that he’d start shooting.

According to a Thursday Baltimore Sun report, the shouting man, still unidentified, was escorted out of the building and the play continued.

“Fiddler on the Roof” is based on Yiddish stories and tells the tale of a Jewish family in Russia during the early 1900s.

The incident comes on the heels of October’s massacre at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and a general upswing of anti-Semitic crimes.
