WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A Black Friday bomb scare emptied a suburban New York Wal-Mart for about two hours.

The Journal News reports that Friday's bomb scare at the store in White Plains sent hundreds of shoppers into the streets.

Police Chief James Bradley said store officials received two threatening phone calls shortly before 1 p.m. and decided to evacuate.

Public Safety Commissioner David Chong said bomb-sniffing dogs swept through the store but found nothing suspicious. The store reopened after about two hours.

Chong says police are investigating whether the threats were connected to protests around the country by activists calling for higher wages for Wal-Mart workers.
