A Walmart is back open after it was evacuated because of a bomb threat Friday afternoon.

Police tell us a person called the Walmart near Platte and Chelton in Colorado Springs.

We're told the caller was yelling and irate, and said he was going to blow up the building.

The entire store was evacuated so a police dog could search the building. The dog didn't find anything and the store re-opened.
