    The incident occurred around 8 p.m.
    "The store perceived something as a threat to its customers and associates and evacuated the store for safety measures," Kayla Whaling, Wal-Mart media relations specialist said.
    Whaling said that Wal-Mart then notified police and reopened the store about an hour later, once law enforcement gave confirmation that it was safe to resume business.
    Whaling said that Wal-Mart provided the St. Robert police department further information on the incident.
