Shoppers in Henry County got more than they bargained for when a grenade was found in the store parking lot Wednesday.

Employees at a Walmart store on Mineral Wells Avenue in Paris, TN, called police after spotting a grenade in the bed of a pickup truck in the parking lot.

Authorities showed up and evacuated everyone from the store.

They later determined the grenade was military memorabilia and was harmless.  Officials took it away for disposal.

The owner of the truck was not charged.
