CLOVIS (KSMX)- On August 16 at approximately 10:48 AM the Clovis Police Department received information stating there was going to be a mass shooting at the Clovis local Wal-Mart.
Several surrounding agencies received this same information and have found these claims to be false.
This appears to be a hoax in attempt to expand public fear in lieu of recent tragedies. All threats to public safety are taken seriously and fully investigated.
If a threat was found to be credible, measures would be taken to ensure that our community was well informed and safe.
Officials advise the public to refrain from sharing false messages like these without calling and checking the credibility with your local law enforcement agency first.
Contact the Clovis Police Department at 575-769-1921 with questions or concerns.
