WESTON (WAOW) -- A gas leak Friday evening forced shoppers at several businesses in Weston to evacuate.

Everest Metro police say they believe somebody hit a heater with a forklift at Target, causing gas to escape. It happened just before 7:00 p.m. Police and fire crews arrived and evacuated Target, Dollar Tree, and Goodwill.

Police say the fire department shut the gas off, and the gas company arrived to take care of the problem. Shoppers were allowed back inside stores without any problems.

Police say no one was injured.
