PHOENIX -- A Target store in Gilbert, Ariz., was evacuated Tuesday after police received a bomb threat.

Gilbert Police Sgt. Jesse Sanger said the management team at the Target at Warner and Val Vista decided to evacuate as a precaution.

"Gilbert police did assist with that," he said.

A bomb threat was also made against a Home Depot in Mesa, Ariz., but Sanger said he did not have more information on that.

The bomb threats were called in from a gas station in Mesa.
