El CENTRO, Calif. – A hectic scene earlier today as police and firefighters responded to the Walmart because of a bomb threat.
Our news team received a tip around 3 p.m. and as our crew arrived on scene, customers and workers were already evacuating to the Costco parking lot.
We spoke to an employee who was able to tell us what happened.
“We were working inside and they just asked everybody to go outside because supposedly there was a bomb threat, we have to be outside for safety. They asked all the customers to go outside too. The police are doing their work, and the firefighters too,” said Vicente German.
After about 25 minutes the threat was cleared and people were able to return to the store. Details on the threat and how it was placed has not yet been determined.
