HOUSTON -- A Walmart store in Houston has reopened after a bomb threat sparked a flurry of law enforcement activity.
New video from a Walmart shopper shows the moment some rushed out of the store.
Some parents grabbed onto their children as they evacuated.
"I kinda couldn't believe it was happening," a bystander said. "I was like, 'What if something happens right now? Where do I run to?' You never know if the bad person is right next to you."
A bomb threat found to be not credible, changing the mood for shoppers.

Some could only think of one thing: "The thing that happened in El Paso."
Choppers flew over the scene where a large group of employees in Walmart smocks were gathered outside, some distance away from the building.
Walmart released this statement to ABC7 sister station, KTRK, Monday night:
"The safety and security of our customers and associates is a top priority. After being alerted to a potential threat, we notified local law enforcement, and evacuated the store out of an abundance of caution."
