12-year-old student was arrested for SnapChat threat against a school facility

Another Florida immature teenager has been arrested for posting threats to shoot other students at Burns middle school by using SnapChat.

12-year old Emma Acebedo has been arrested and charged with creating a written threat to kill, do bodily injury, or conduct mass shooting or act of terrorism.

According to a media unleash, on August 22, 2019, at just about 11:30 a.m., a student at Barrington middle school approached a school Resource Deputy (SRD) about a SnapChat post mentioning a school threat.
Deputies learned the threat was published on SnapChat by Emma Acebedo, a Burns middle school student.

The post stated: “Dear bms students I’ll be shooting that school up September 3 2019 be prepared say your goodbyes to your family because that’s fine…Good luck (; be ready”.

The SRD at Burns middle school was notified right away. Acebedo, a seventh grader, admitted to sending the message and later on purpose deleting the Snapchat.

“The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office takes all school threats, verbal, written or published to social media, terribly seriously,” said sheriff Chad Chronister. “We have a zero-tolerance policy. It’s vital for parents to understand what their youngsters are posting online. If you create a school threat, of any kind, you will be arrested and charged consequently.”

Acebedo is currently facing a felony charge of creating a written threat.
