pokemon go

Hundreds, if not thousands of local residents have been piling into local parks and other public places to capture Pokemon characters and play the Pokemon Go App. In almost all of the cases, it's all in good fun and is getting people out of the house during these hot summer months. But there have been some problems.

Two young men were robbed at gunpoint while playing the game at Columbia Park in Shreveport. The suspects have been caught and the property has been recovered.

Downtown businesses are reporting bigger crowds than ever as a result of Poke-Stops in the Red River District and along Texas Street.

But area churches are looking to find ways to deal with the crowds that are flocking to their complexes to play the game. We talked with Pastor Tim Barnes at Asbury United Methodist Church which is a Poke-stop in the game.
