A man who allegedly threatened to harm himself and the police while at the Leavenworth Wal-Mart store turned out to be unarmed, a police spokesman said.

No injuries were reported.

The 31-year-old man, who was described as suicidal, was arrested for allegedly making criminal threats. The suspect, who is a veteran, was taken to the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Leavenworth for evaluation, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The incident began at 2:18 p.m. Tuesday when the man reportedly called the Leavenworth Police Department and made threats over the phone while at the Subway restaurant inside of the Wal-Mart store.

Police officers responded, and the man surrendered, according to Nicodemus.

The deputy chief said officers went through the store to make sure no one was hurt and there were no other potential suspects.

Nicodemus said the case will be forwarded to prosecutors for possible charges.
