A bomb threat at the Walmart Supercenter in Harker Heights closed the big-box retailer for several hours early Tuesday morning.

The business received a bomb threat about 1:30 a.m., and staff immediately called 911, Harker Heights police Lt. Loretta Fox said.

Fort Hood’s bomb squad came out to the business with bomb-sniffing dogs. About 5:10 a.m., authorities determined there was no threat, and the business was reopened.

Police identified a suspect, but had not made an arrest as of Tuesday afternoon, Fox said.
