A deputy working security at the Walmart on Marsha Sharp received a bomb threat over the phone on Thursday evening.
The call came in at around 5:20 p.m. The suspect demanded six gift cards worth $500 each, and claimed he had people inside the store that would set the bomb off for him.
The Walmart was evacuated immediately.
No immediate threat was found, and shoppers and employees were allowed back into the store.
The Lubbock Police Department is currently conducting its investigation into the event.
