Was That Fake? - warning not to shoot Hurricane Irma

Anchor Kaitlin Monte asks, "Was that fake?"

Did you read or hear about the Pasco County Sheriff who posted a warning on Twitter for residents of Florida not to fire weapons at Hurricane Irma? In the tweet, the sheriff wrote, "You won't make it turn around."

The reason for the tweet was an event posted on Facebook titled "Shoot at Irma," which had 54,000 people join and an explanation of the best way to accomplish that questionable goal.

The event appears to be a joke, but the sheriff is taking serious heat for it. Perhaps a case of better safe than sorry?
