Texas Walmart locked down after bomb scare

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON, Texas (WHDH) - Employees and shoppers at a Walmart near Houston were locked down Saturday after authorities confronted a man who had an unknown device and possible weapons nearby.

A man wearing a mask was seen with a knife near the store and someone called the police.

When police arrived, they saw what appeared to be a bomb and called for backup. A robot was used to search the car, then the driver was stripped down and searched.

People in the store watched through windows and took pictures, trying to figure out what was going on.

There was word of a bomb threat, but it turned out to be a hoax.
