DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A metro Atlanta Walmart has been given the all-clear after an alleged bomb threat on Monday afternoon.
DeKalb County Police confirmed around 5:20 p.m. that they were working the scene at the Walmart at the corner of Gresham Road and Flat Shoals Road.
By 6:12 p.m., police said the store had been cleared and had also reopened. Police still haven't released any details about how the threat came in or what type of explosive the threat mentioned - if anything in particular.
