A threatening text is making its way to cell phones all over the country. Today it hit mobile phones in Las Cruces but police say not to worry. It's a hoax.

The texts warn shoppers to avoid certain businesses because gang members are planning to kill customers as part of initiation. Authorities say the messages are not credible. They are asking anyone who receives them to delete the message and not forward them to anyone else.
