At least three Walmarts have been evacuated in the Kansas City area Friday afternoon because of bomb threats.
A Kansas City, KCK and Raytown Walmarts were affected.
A Northland Walmart has been evacuated because of a bomb threat. This is the second time in a week.
The store is located at 8301 N. Church Rd. in Kansas City near Liberty. The call to police was made at 1:45 p.m. Friday. Store officials voluntarily evacuated the store.
The Kansas City Police Department's bomb squad responded to the scene.
A Walmart at Village West at 10824 Parallel Parkway in Kansas City, KS., was also been evacuated. Customers were allowed back inside by 2:40 p.m. Friday.
Both stores received telephone threats. The KCK store received its call at 1:41 p.m. The caller said two bombs were inside the building.
A KCTV5 viewer described the scene inside the Northland Walmart.
"My wife was inside when she say a manager run pass her, then over the PA she was told to drop what she had and exit the store," the man wrote.
The Raytown Walmart was impacted for the second time.
Bridget Patton, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said agents are assisting local law enforcement and working to determine whether these latest bomb threats are connected to the previous threats. At least 11 Kansas and Missouri Walmarts were evacuated between Friday and Sunday.
