Valley News Live says customers and employees are now allowed back in the Walmart, roughly half an hour after people were told to evacuate.

Multiple viewers are telling Valley News Live police had guns drawn outside the store as customers were rushed out.

According to our reporter on the scene, everyone has been allowed back in the store and business has resumed as usual.

The call came in around 12:20 this afternoon saying that there was a man waving a gun around in the hardware department of the store.

Police arrived on the scene quickly and immediately evacuated everyone from the building.

They then swept the Walmart for the gunman and found nothing.

Officials have now put a search warrant in place trying to find the woman who placed the call to see if it was a prank.
