GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Greenfield Police Department says a shopping center near 84th and Layton is now clear after a bomb threat was called in shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday night. No bomb was found, and the scene was cleared a little before 10:30 p.m.
A employee who works at Ross Dress for Less said a man called in the bomb threat. She heard it relayed over her employee radio headset. The man said a bomb would explode inside the store in seven minutes.
That employee says the store was evacuated immediately, adding while people were scared, it was an orderly evacuation. Shoppers had to leave their items in their carts and employees had to leave all personal items behind.
The Ross store was evacuated for about two hours. Fresh Thyme, Marshalls, and other stores in the shopping center were also empty.
Police blocked off the entire shopping center, including the delivery drive in the back. The only people who went in and out of the stores were Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputies leading dogs on leashes.
Police taped off several streets around a strip mall.
An investigation is underway.
