Social media has been buzzing Monday night after posts began circulating that someone made a threat to the Walmart on Saratoga.

Corpus Christi Police confirmed that the threat is not credible.

According to Lt. Gonzales with CCPD, officers responded to the social media threats around 9 p.m. After officers checked out the Walmart and the HEB Plus on Saratoga, CCPD did not find credible evidence to be alarmed.

The post began circulating on Facebook Monday evening two days after a Walmart in El Paso was targeted by an active shooter.
