APOPKA, Fla. (AP) - A 6-foot alligator made an unwelcome appearance at the front door of a central Florida Wal-Mart.

The incident happened Sunday morning in Apopka, outside Orlando. The gator stopped in the entryway, causing the automatic doors to open and close until employees locked them.

Orlando television station WKMG reports Apopka police officers tried to lure the gator away as customers gathered to watch and take pictures.

The gator took off toward the nearby woods. Officers searched the area but couldn't find it.

No one was injured.
