*****UPDATE*****

WALMART HAS RE-OPENED

 

Shortly after 5 am this morning Glasgow Police responded to a bomb threat at Wal-Mart.

First, someone called Walgreens, and indicated they were going to blow up Wal-Mart.

After responding to Walgreens, police then went to Walmart, and evacuated the building and did a walk through with management and the Glasgow Fire Department personnel. The entrances to the Walmart parking lot have been blocked by units from the Glasgow Fire Department.  At this hour the lockdown continues.  We’ll have an update as it becomes available from Glasgow Police.
