DENVER (KDVR) — A Walmart in Aurora was temporarily evacuated Sunday morning after a man allegedly threatened to shoot up the store.
The store, located in the 3300 block of North Tower Road, was evacuated around 9:05 a.m.
Police said a man bought something at the store on Saturday. He allegedly didn’t get a receipt for it but felt he’d been overcharged. He then got into an argument with store management.
Police told FOX31 the man threatened to come back and shoot up the store.
He had another verbal argument with store management after returning Sunday and allegedly made another threat to shoot up the store.
Police told FOX31 that management evacuated customers and sent employees to a secure location inside the store as a precaution.
The man ended up leaving and was found nearby at around 9:20 a.m. Police said the suspect had an active warrant for an unrelated charge and was arrested.
“This is really crazy you know, ’cause this is me and my family’s Walmart. We’ve been coming here for years,” one shopper said.
Police said the man will likely face charges for his actions. No weapons were recovered from the man after he was arrested.
“I’ve heard of crazy things happening here before but I’ve never heard of a guy coming in saying he’s going to shoot people,” the shopper said. “You just have to be safe and always watch your surroundings.”
The evacuation ended after the man was arrested, police said.
