WPD: Mass shooting reports are false

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Wichita Police say social media posts about a mass shooting plot in the city are false.   WPD went to social media late Tuesday to spread the news.

A tweet from the @WichitaPolice account said  "Wichita, the WPD has been notified about an article on social media speaking about a "mass shooting attempt in Wichita thwarted by WPD."  This information is FALSE.  The information listed in this article is inaccurate."

The tweet comes days after two mass shootings that left 31 people dead.
