Posing as a student, a social media user posted that they intended to “shoot up” an elite high school named Millennium Brooklyn High School in Brooklyn. Police are now investigating the sick posts.
“I’m going to shoot up my school Millennium Brooklyn High School New York with an MP15 assault rifle and a Glock 17 pistol with hundreds of rounds of ammunition in a few weeks and Livestream it on my Instagram,” the person wrote on the site Omegle on Thursday.
Soon after seeing this horrific post, an employee at the Park Slope school reported the disturbing threat to police at 9 a.m. Friday. It hasn’t been confirmed whether the person is indeed a student at the school, or is someone who’s pretending to be one.
The post also said the shooter would blast “dancin military style and abba gimme gimme eurobeat” music during the shooting, adding “I hope to take at least 15-30 people with me mostly in the classrooms or hallways, plus some people fleeing the building.”
The alleged wannabe shooter vowed to not surrender to police and would “shoot through the windows to get them and before I do it I’ll send a link to my stream to everyone.” The person then lists the names of more than a dozen students to be killed.
