Reports of an armed man inside a Walmart in San Jacinto Monday prompted Riverside County Sheriff’s Department deputies to evacuate the building and conduct a search, though no one was found and no injuries were reported.

The possible “active shooter” call was received about 5:45 p.m. at the store in the 1800 block of South San Jacinto Avenue, according to reports from the scene.

It was unclear what led to the 911 call, and sheriff’s officials only said a search of the store was being conducted.

The sheriff’s department reported about 7:35 p.m. that a search came up empty, and the area was deemed safe to the public.

No further details were released.
