These Tweets  got the Secret Service’s attention.

CBS News reports that the Secret Service said Monday it will investigate and try to figure out who hacked into Fox’s political Twitter account and posted multiple Tweets claiming President Obama had been assassinated in Iowa and the shooter was unknown.

CBS reported that Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said the agency will conduct the probe.

In a statement posted on its website, Fox News called the tweets “malicious” and “false”, CBS reported.

“We will be requesting a detailed investigation from Twitter about how this occurred, and measures to prevent future unauthorized access into FoxNews.com accounts,” said Jeff Misenti, vice president and general manager of Fox News Digital.
