Pittsburg County deputies arrested a teen on Sunday in connection to threats made against McAlester High School.

Deputies say 18-year-old Alexis Wilson 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 on Monday by Wilson's coworkers at a local Pizza Inn where they say she had been showing someone videos of her shooting a newly purchased rifle.

Deputies say Wilson told that person that 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 admitted to 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 as well as 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 and buying the rifle but did not think anything of it as "Alexis has always shot firearms and had hunted."

Deputies arrested Wilson, and she faces charges for making terroristic threats toward the school.

The judge set her bond at $250,000. Her next court appearance is Sept. 27.
