    THAT WAS WELL THOUGHT OUT. WITH ALL OF THE CAMERAS WALMART HAS, P.D. SHOULD HAVE A SUSPECT IN NO TIME

    At least this time they actually evacuated! Several months ago something similar occured. Nothing was said. Shoppers continued to shop, associates continued to work. I guess sales were down that month.
