An Oklahoma teen is accused of threatening to carry out a school shooting at her former high school.

Alexis Wilson, 18, of McAlester, was arrested Monday after a co-worker told investigators that Wilson had said she wanted to shoot 400 people at McAlester High School and investigators viewed video of Wilson firing an AK-47, authorities said.

She allegedly said she was "going to shoot 400 people for fun,” according to a sheriff's office report, obtained by Fox23 in Tulsa.

Deputies said they found an AK-47 with six magazines and a 12-gauge shotgun in her bedroom.

“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.”

Authorities say Wilson was expelled from McAlester High School after several violent incidents, including a suspension for being caught with a knife and a swastika at the school. She wasn't allowed to re-enroll.

The teen has been charged with felony terrorist hoax. During her arrest, and for her mugshot, she was sporting a T-shirt with the text “The Anarchist Cookbook,” which references the 1971 counterculture  book that explains how to build explosives. The book is believed to have assisted in a number of school shootings and domestic terror incidents including the 2013 Arapahoe High School shooting, the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, the Boston Marathon bombers and the Oklahoma City Bombing, according to a 2013 NBC News report.

During a Monday arraignment, Wilson’s bond has been set at $250,000 and a hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 27.

Jail records don't show if she has an attorney. 

Wilson allegedly told police “she would never shoot up a school” and said her friend took her comments the wrong way, according to a sheriff’s report, obtained by the News-Capitol. She also allegedly said she used to be both suicidal and “borderline homicidal to the people of McAlester school because she was bullied.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
