WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update: A public information officer with the Wichita Police Department confirmed the bomb threat reported at the Walmart near Kellogg and Greenwich was a false call. Employees at the store were cleared to go back inside.

Police said a Walmart employee in the electronics department answered a call and heard the caller whisper about a bomb. The employee then called Wichita police and workers evacuated the store. Officers arrived to investigate and were able to give the “all-clear.”

A bomb threat at an east Wichita Walmart prompted an evacuation of the store. A Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor confirmed the emergency call was made a little after 6 p.m. from the Walmart store near Kellogg and Greenwich.

An hour later, investigators remain on the scene.
