Walmart Evacuated for Unfounded Bomb Threat

A Walmart store on College Avenue was evacuated Saturday morning after someone called in a bomb threat, the San Diego Police Department confirmed.

Police said the manager of the store in the 3400 block of College Avenue in the Oak Park area received some kind of threat around 11:25 a.m. and evacuated the building as a precaution. Police arrived on scene to investigate and determined there was no bomb.

Officers cleared the area shortly thereafter, deeming it safe for employees and customers.

No further details were immediately released. No injuries were reported.

This Walmart on College Avenue was the same store where a man, demanding money from a cashier, fired gunshots into the ceiling on May 6, 2014, sending frightened shoppers running for cover. The Walmart was also robbed by another man armed with a gun in November 2013.
