HOUSTON (AP) – Authorities say an outlet mall in Northwest Harris County was evacuated after a bomb scare that turned out to be a false alarm.
The Houston Chronicle reports a bomb-sniffing dog “false hit” on an abandoned bag Sunday. That forced the evacuation of the Houston Premium Outlets off U.S. 290.
A bomb squad determined the bag contained nothing dangerous after about two hours. The scene was deemed safe and shoppers were allowed to return to their parked cars.
