SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -

The Sioux Falls Police Department is warning residents about a fake news story circulating on the internet involving the murder of children.

Police say a person posted a link in a closed Facebook group to a ‘news’ story about children that were killed by their mother in Sioux Falls.

Officer Sam Clemens says this story is a type of click-bait designed to draw people to a particular website.

There was no homicide reported to police and no crimes that match this description. Clemens says people should use caution when going to unfamiliar websites.
