Fayetteville Police Warn Of Gang Initation Hoax


Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor wants to advise citizens of a hoax that is circulating by e-mail, text messaging and other forms of electronic messaging.

E-Mails and Text Messages received by some Fayetteville residents claim there will be a gang initiation shooting at Wal-Mart and the intended targets are females.  There are several versions of this message circulating throughout the United States and there is no credible information to substantiate this claim. 

If you have received any version of this message it’s recommended that you do not forward it to your contacts to avoid further public alarm.
