ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orlando police are searching for a man who they say walked into a 7-Eleven and told a clerk that he placed a bomb in the building.

The 7-Eleven on South Kirkman Road was evacuated Monday just after 6:30 p.m., closing Conroy Road west of Kirkman Road. The evacuation was lifted and roads were reopened shortly after.

Police said the culprit was described as a white man, about 60 years old who was wearing a yellow shirt and glasses. He was last seen headed south from the business.
