Call center evacuated after gun threat

LACY LAKEVIEW, TX (KXXV) - A call center was evacuated late Friday afternoon after a threat regarding a man with a gun. Employees at the General Dynamics Information Technology Center in Lacy Lakeview, which takes calls for the Affordable Care Act, were evacuated. The call center is located in the 1200 block of Lake Shore Drive.

Police got a tip call that a disgruntled employee, who was mad at another employee, was coming to the call center with a gun at 5 p.m. That sparked a police response from Bellmead, Lacy Lakeview and TSTC. That alleged gunman did not show up.

An e-mail sent by supervisors said employees arriving for work were being sent home. Others already inside were locked down, and then later sent home for safety precautions.

Employees leaving the building said they weren't told why they had to evacuate just that they had to leave.

Police are now working to find out who that alleged gunman is.
