Authorities Secure Muscle Shoals Walmart After Bomb Threat

MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) – Officers from the Muscle Shoals Police Department (MSPD) and Florence Police Department (FPD) Bomb Squad responded to a possible bomb threat at a Muscle Shoals Walmart on Saturday morning.

The MSPD said officers responded to the Walmart on Avalon Avenue to investigate a bomb threat that was made around 7:50 a.m. Sunday.

After the potential threat was flagged, the MSPD said Walmart management evacuated the building out of an abundance of caution. MSPD officers and detectives searched the scene with the assistance of the FPD K-9 Bomb Squad.

Officials said the research determined the threat was “unfounded,” but added they would continue to investigate the threat.

As of 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Walmart had resumed normal operations.
