Police were called to the Walmart on Richmond Road on Saturday night after a witness noticed a car full of men in body armor holding semi-automatic weapons. A six-month old baby was in the car.

Lt Jackie Newman said that when Lexington police officers got the three men out of the car about 11:15 p.m., they said were preparing for doomsday and needed supplies. The men were armed with pistols and semi-automatic rifles, police said. A license is not required to have semi-automatic weapons in a car, police said.

Police also found some marijuana in the car.

All three men voluntarily came to police headquarters for questioning that night, said Lt. Richard Willoby of the Lexington Police Department. They were cooperative with police and no charges were filed.
