APEX, N.C. (WNCN) – Apex police confirmed officers responded to a bomb threat Tuesday at the Halle Arts Center in downtown.

Just 2 minutes later, a second call came in warning that everyone needed to exit the building, Capt. Stephens said.
The arts center and nearby buildings were evacuated at that point.
After the building was cleared and searched another call came in about a bomb in the building, but officials had just searched the building.
No bomb was ever found, officials say.
