WINDSOR, Conn. — Some shoppers at the Target store in Windsor experienced a little Black Friday excitement -- although not over any sales or bargains. 

Around 1 p.m., the store was evacuated when several people reported the smell of natural gas.

Windsor police and fire departments, CT Natural Gas, and Eversource all responded to investigate the cause of the smell.  Employees awaited the all-clear in the store's parking lot. 

The scene was eventually declared safe and the store reopened; officials have not provided any information about what the source of the smell was.
