Mooresville Walmart reopens after bomb threat

The Mooresville Walmart has reopened after a bomb threat forced an evacuation earlier this afternoon.

The threat was called in at 3:05 p.m. and is the second threat the store has received in less than a month. Located at 169 Norman Station Blvd., the store closed for several hours on March 5 after someone threatened to release some type of chemical inside the building, officials said.

K-9 units continued to search the store around 5:30 p.m. Friday and emergency responders remained on site, said town spokeswoman Kim Sellers.

Shortly before 6:30 p.m., fire and police officials cleared the scene and Walmart reopened for business.
