Officials say at 10:15 a.m., and 10:20 a.m., they received a 911 call for an indication that an explosive device may be in both buildings.

Both stores just about 10 minutes away from each other were safely evacuated and the buildings were searched by officers and Explosive Detection K-9(s).

Officials say no explosive devices were located in the building and the threat does not seem credible.

This is a developing situation.
