A man was arrested in the United States on Sunday for posting a school shooting threat on social media. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, Corey Anderson, 18, in his social media post wrote, “Hey Siri, directions to the nearest school. In the post, Anderson also shared her photos in a tactical-style vest and weapons, which looked like a handgun and rifle. “This type of threat is unacceptable. This man intentionally instilled fear in our community as a sick joke, but beware, this is no laughing matter,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said.

After investigation, detectives determined that the handgun and rifle were in fact “airsoft guns”. The accused was arrested at his home and charged with a written or electronic threat to commit a mass shooting or an act of terrorism.
