Fake News Story Concerning Putnam School Circulating on Social Media
May 10, 2017
Palatka FL: There is a fake news story currently circulating on Facebook reporting a gun being found at Palatka High School yesterday, May 9, 2017. The bogus article indicates a student was discovered to have a Glock 22 pistol and then to have fled the scene in a stolen vehicle when approached by law enforcement. We repeat, this hoax is a complete fabrication. The news agency, channel 23 News, appears to be a fabrication produced by a fake news app. The original Facebook post also appears to be from a fake Facebook account.
