From Samuel L. Jackson to Taylor Swift, we've had our share of internet hoaxes in the Shreveport area this year. But most of the time, it's been based in the celebrity world. This time, someone's trying to make it a little too real.

A fake website, which is only around to generate clicks for fake companies, is publishing false news stories about cities that have existing violence issues. Like the Shreveport area, cities like Baltimore and Chicago are have been victims of this same hoax website.

I have already seen this story pop up across all of my social media accounts, and it seems like it's spreading WAY too fast.

So please, take the time to repost this story, we have too many issues in Shreveport we really need to focus on, instead of focusing on this fake story.
