A Florida woman was charged Friday with threating to carry out a mass shooting at a school in an online post.

Juliana Cote, 26, of Tampa, made the threat Thursday, the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office said.

Cote “made a public posting on her Facebook account yesterday with a photograph of a small fake firearm threatening to ‘shoot everyone’ at the nearest elementary school,” the office said in a tweet.

Deputies say Cote lives near an elementary school, Fox 13 Tampa reported.

Investigators said Cote admitted to making the threat on her Facebook page.
