The first CWL event of the year kicked off today in Dallas, but the event met an abrupt stop earlier this afternoon after a fire alarm went off in the building.
There were many different stories as to what is happening, but a local news outlet, WFAA, in Dallas says that the event was evacuated after a security guard called in a possible bomb threat.
Dallas convention center has been evacuated. Sources say a security guard called DPD saying he saw a back pack that looked like it had dynamite in it. Bomb squad called in. Sources say Crime Stoppers also got a calling saying Convention center would be blown up in 30 minutes.
