AUSTIN (KXAN) — A bomb scare early Friday morning forced the H-E-B at Hancock Center in central Austin to temporarily evacuate.
Austin Police say the threat came in just before 2 a.m. and prompted an immediate search of the store at 1000 East 41st Street. A caller told KXAN the store was evacuated while police conducted the search. Police did not give many details.
A little before 3 a.m., officers said they did not find anything in the store, and H-E-B reopened.
