A Walmart on the east side of the valley was evacuated Monday evening due to a bomb threat.

"All I was thinking was 'am I going to have to shield my son?' Sadly that's the first thing that came to mind was I don't hear guns, but am I going to," said Nicole Barbon, a Walmart customer who was forced to leave the store.

Around 7 p.m., the store near Nellis Boulevard and Boulder Highway was evacuated after a bomb threat was written on a wall in the women's restroom. Police used K-9 units but nothing was located.

"Walking in the restroom I actually got a little creeped out, but now I'm really creeped out," said Jessica Kuss, Walmart customer.
