A text message hoax has been sweeping that nation, warning people to stay away from their local Wal-Mart.
Variants of that message include: "Gang initiates must assault or kill a woman, child or elderly person at a Wal-mart," and "do not go to wal-mart tonight. gang initiation to shoot 3 women. not sure what wal-mart and confirmed on TV."
Locally the text message impacted Moncks Corner and Myrtle Beach.
