EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE)  - Walmart is apologizing for a display at one of its Evansville locations. 

It appears to market guns as back-to-school items. 

Several people posted this picture of a sign over a gun case.

The display read: “Own The School Year Like A Hero.”

The company's Twitter identified the store as the West Side 

Walmart responded and condemned the display, calling it "truly awful" in a statement.

A spokesperson said Wednesday the sign would be removed.
