A bomb threat against Target was investigated by the Boardman and Niles Police. 

On Friday, Boardman Police became aware of a bomb threat made concerning five Targets throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania, including the Boardman and Niles location. 

Boardman and Niles Police worked with the FBI and the Youngstown Bomb Squad to investigate the threat. 

Niles Police also did a sweep of the Target located inside the Eastwood Mall after being made aware of the threat, but did not find anything.
