MIami dispatchers were flooded today with calls concerning a text message alerting women to stay away from Wal-Mart tonight.

According to the message, it is gang initiation night and - depending on the text - one to three women are suppose to be shot at a Wal-Mart.

The News-Record conducted an investigation and discovered that the hoax originated in Nashville in 2005 and has been revived in the past few days showing up in Florida, Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
