WESTON, Fla. — A 12-year-old girl is accused of making threats on social media, including a “death list,” toward students at a South Florida middle school, authorities said.
Deputies said the girl posted the threatening message Friday on Snapchat, WLPG reported. The "death list" threat named students at her school, the television station reported. Later in the day, a second threat was posted to Snapchat, indicating the students were not safe and would be killed Monday, WFOR reported.
According to a Facebook post by the Sheriff's Office, the girl was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of making a written threat to kill and false reporting concerning a firearm.
Deputies were made aware of the threats when a student at the middle school and her parent alerted authorities, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
