An 18-year-old Oklahoma woman was arrested Monday with an AK-47 after she allegedly threatened to shoot “400 people for fun,” including some at her former high school, officials said.
Alexis Wilson told her coworker at a pizza restaurant Monday that she had purchased the semi-automatic AK-47, according to a report from the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office.
Two coworkers reported to authorities that Wilson showed off pictures of her holding the rifle and said there were people at her old school, McAlester High School, that she would like to gun down.
Deputies located Wilson near her home, according to a probable cause affidavit. She told them “she was just trying to teach her coworker not to be afraid of firearms,” but couldn’t explain why she made a specific threat toward McAlester High School.
She said she was bullied when she went to the school but was “always good about just ignoring it,” the affidavit said. She also said she was having trouble re-enrolling at McAlester “due to previous incidents,” the affidavit said.
Deputies went on to search Wilson’s home, with her mother’s permission. The mother led investigators to Wilson’s room, telling them she knew about the AK-47 because her daughter had been saving up to buy it.
The deputies found the AK-47 with six high-capacity magazines and several rounds of ammunition, along with a 12-gauge shotgun in Wilson’s room.
School officials said Wilson had dropped out of the high school in her freshman year. They told investigators that she had been suspended for bringing a knife to school and having a swastika symbol on some of her belongings.
The teen was charged with felony terrorist hoax and is being held on a $250,000 bond at the Pittsburg County Jail, according to court documents. She was arraigned Monday, and her next court date was set for Sept. 27. If convicted, Wilson faces up to 10 years in prison.
