Messages Warning People of Gang Violence are Unsubstantiated
By Marco Grajeda
Las Cruces, NM – Wednesday, a series of emails and text messages warning people to avoid certain stores in Las Cruces began circulating the city. According to the Las Cruces Police Department, the messages told residents that gang members were planning to kill customers at area businesses, as part of an initiation, but as KRWG's Marco Grajeda reports, police investigators say the messages are NOT credible.
