MUNCICE, Ind. (AP) - Police say several people were treated at a hospital after complaining of breathing difficulties at a Muncie Walmart store.

Muncie Police Department detective Kyle Monroe says he believes eight people including store employees had been examined at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital following the incident that was reported about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Monroe tells The Star Press (https://tspne.ws/19UvMbh ) that all of the patients were released following treatment. He says they complained of a burning sensation in their throats after an odor was detected, first in the customer service area and then near the checkout lanes.

The source of the odor was not immediately clear.

The store closed for a short time.
