Walmart Messages All A Hoax


It's all just a hoax. That's what police tell NEWSFIRST about an email and text message that's floating around--that warns of a shooting at Walmart.

Lexington Police are aware of the messages. They say this hoax started back in 2005 and is all over the country. Investigators believe it actually started in Delaware. The message claims as part of a gang initiation, three women will be shot at a Walmart.

Police dispatchers here in Lexington and all over the country have been getting dozens of phone calls about the hoax, several people called our newsroom asking about it, but, there's no credible threat behind this "urban legend."
