Shoppers wait outside of Durham, N.C.'s Southpointe Mall after a reported bomb threat Monday morning, March 26, 2018. Police also responded to threats at the mall on Sunday.

Durham police received four phone calls from a man in Virginia Sunday in which bomb threats were made, involving The Street at Southpoint.

Police spokesman Wil Glenn said a caller alerted authorities to the threat of a potential bomb at 3:11 p.m. Sunday. The call was placed from a phone in Virginia, Glenn said.

The Nordstrom department store located inside the largest of The Streets at Southpoint buildings was the focus of that threat.

The Durham County Sheriff's Office Bomb Unit searched the Nordstrom store and found no bomb.

Police said the same caller made three additional threatening calls Sunday. Glenn said the case remains under investigation.
