A Florida woman was arrested for posting a school threat on her Snapchat account over the weekend.

A concerned citizen contacted the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office late Sunday night about the Snapchat post from 18-year-old Hanlin Majewski.

Deputies say she posted a picture of a boy in a black tactical vest pointing what looked like a black handgun at the camera with the caption “don’t come to school tomorrow.”

When deputies responded to Majewski’s home, they say she admitted she took the picture, typed the caption and posted it. She told deputies the 17-year-old boy in the picture was holding a fake gun and said she “meant no harm by posting the image.”

Deputies later identified the boy in the photo and contacted his parents, who said he does not have access to any weapons or firearms.

Deputies recovered the tactical vest and airsoft BB gun that were seen in the Snapchat. They learned he was playing with the BB gun just before Majewski took his picture.

According to deputies, neither Majewski nor the boy is a student at Pinellas County Schools. ​​

Majewski was a student at Gibbs High School until last year but is now a student at Florida Virtual School. The boy is homeschooled. 

Majewski was arrested for threatening communications or threats of mass shootings.
