PITTSBURG COUNTY, Okla. - Deputies in Oklahoma arrested a teen Sunday in connection to threats made against McAlester High School.
Pittsburg County deputies said Alexis Wilson, 18, made the threats while talking to a friend, which got reported to the Sheriff's Office through her coworkers.
According to reports, deputies were called Monday by Wilson's co-workers at a local Pizza Inn, where they say she had been showing someone videos of her shooting a newly purchased rifle.
Deputies said Wilson told that person she was going to "shoot 400 people for fun and that there were so many people at her old school that she would like to do it."
At her home, Wilson told deputies the comment wasn't "meant to be taken the way that the comment was taken in the situation (Sunday)."
Deputies found the recently bought AK-47, along with multiple magazines and a 12-gauge shotgun in Wilson's room inside the home.
According to the Sheriff's Office report, Wilson's mother was aware her daughter had been saving for the rifle but was not concerned since "Alexis has always shot firearms and had hunted."
Wilson was arrested and faces charges of making terroristic threats toward the school.
