Metro police and local fire crews responded to a Walmart on the west side of town on reports of a “suspicious person.” This happened at the Walmart near the 215 & Rainbow.
Metro police told 8 News Now officers responded to the Walmart just after 8 p.m. According to police, based on that person’s actions there was a voluntary evacuation of the store.
Police say the suspect sprayed 13 people inside the store with a “clear liquid” while wearing a hazmat suit. Police say they are not yet sure what the liquid actually was. None of the people sprayed are showing any signs of symptoms, and no one was taken to the hospital.
