The Walmart store in Fredonia was evacuated on Wednesday after workers received several calls threatening violence.

Police responded in droves and say that a person threatened to be inside the store with a loaded weapon, promising to open fire.

The store was immediately evacuated and police checked patrons as they exited, but didn't find any threat inside.

However, after the store was clear, police took a juvenile into custody for questioned, and the teen admitted to making the calls after watching YouTube video detailing others making similar calls across the nation.

The teenager is now facing felony charges for making a terrorist threat.
