Police swarm Walmart

I was at Walmart (newly opened in 2012) today April 26, 2013 from approximately 11:45 until 2 pm. I am wondering if anyone is aware of why several (It's not an exaggeration to say at least 100 cops Were present )armed cops, Undercover and on-duty, Flooded the store this morning. All of the customers Were instructed, In a dire manner, To vacate the store immediately. I was able to overhear something about someone escaping a car. I do not know if it was an assailant fleeing a Cop car or a civilian car... Eventually we were allowed to go back into the store and continue our purchases. It was nothing short of a quick hysteria, The police did not try to stay calm- it was clear that they felt we were in danger By being in the Walmart. I'm okay besides being shook up, But I'm very curious about what was going on for a response such as that...????
