Battlefords RCMP officers are keeping an eye out after they were told threatening Facebook posts and text messages were shared in the area.

RCMP want people to know they're taking precautions and investigating the message, but people shouldn't let it affect how they would normally go about their day.

In a release, RCMP say the note alludes to possible gang initiations in the area involving guns and targeting random people in North Battleford. Police are still working on finding out whether the posts have any validity.

Battlefords RCMP would like people to report any suspicious activity to their local detachment.
