Man Arrested After Allegedly Threatening To Shoot Up Texas Walmart Days After El Paso Shooting




A man has been arrested after allegedly making a terroristic threat at a Walmart in South Texas just one week after 22 people were killed and dozens more injured in a mass shooting at a different Walmart in El Paso.

The man was arrested early Saturday after threatening to shoot up a Walmart in Harlingen, Texas, according to the Harlingen Police Department.

He allegedly posted the threat on a social media website.



Police received reports of an imminent threat to the store just before 4 a.m. Saturday.

The suspect is currently awaiting arraignment at the Harlingen city jail.

This is the second person arrested in connections to online threats against a Texas Walmart since the El Paso Walmart shooting, reports the Dallas Morning News.

On Thursday, police said they arrested an armed man at a Walmart in Missouri.
