An 18-year-old in McAlester, Oklahoma was reportedly arrrested after her co-workers alleged they overheard her say she wanted to shoot up her old high school. Police said they seized an AK-47-style rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun from her home.

Alexis Wilson, 18, was arrested on a felony terrorist hoax charge, according to the McAlester News-Capital. Her arrest reportedly came after co-workers at a pizza restaurant allegedly heard her say she wanted to, "shoot 400 people for fun and that there were so many people at her old school that she would like to do it."

Wilson also allegedly showed co-workers photos in which she was holding an AK-47-style rifle.

"We'd seen video of her shooting guns," Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris told the McAlester News-Capital. "She showed video to her friends and told them she had recently purchased a gun and told her friends she was going to shoot up the school."

Deputies reportedly searched Wilson's home and allegedly found an AK-47-style rifle and a shotgun in her bedroom, along with additional clips for the rifle and a stock sleeve for storing shotgun shells.

According to authorities, Wilson attended McAlester High School, where she allegedly experienced bullying. She was reportedly forbidden to re-enroll after receiving suspensions for bringing a knife to campus and displaying a swastika symbol on her belongings, according to Tulsa's KTUL-TV.

A probable cause affidavit obtained by NBC News reportedly states Wilson told the police, "she was just trying to teach her co-worker not to be afraid of firearms."

The police report , according to The Washington Post, alleges Wilson told investigators, "she would never shoot up a school or people and that her co-worker must have taken what she said wrong."

Wilson is reportedly at the Pittsburg County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond. Her next court appearance is September 27. If convicted, Wilson could face up to 10 years in prison.
