Florida mom arrested for threatening to shoot up elementary school

A Florida woman upset by her local school district rezoning was arrested for threatening to shoot up the elementary school her children were being moved to.

Miranda Perez, 28, is accused of making the threatening remarks aimed at Barton Elementary School in Lake Worth Beach, Fl., during a Facebook video chat with a friend about 8 a.m. Sunday, according to WPTV.

“I’m thinking of doing a school shooting at Barton,” Perez wrote in a Facebook message after the video chat, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Her comments were reported to the authorities.

Perez confessed to sending the messages when interviewed by detectives, but she insisted they were empty threats, according to the report.

During the original video chat, Perez also bizarrely said she planned to send a Facebook friend request to Zachary Cruz “because she likes ‘violent things,” according to the arrest report.

Zachary Cruz is the brother of 20-year-old Nikolas Cruz — the confessed mass murderer who in 2018 slaughtered 17 people at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
