An 18-year-old Florida man was arrested after he posted a photo of himself online surrounded by what appeared to be weapons along with a caption reading, “Hey Siri, directions to the nearest school.”
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrested Corey Anderson. He’s facing charges of a written or electronic threat to conduct a mass shooting or act of terrorism.
It turned out the “handgun” and “rifle”were actually air soft rifles.

“This type of threat is unacceptable. This man intentionally instilled fear into our community as a sick joke, but be warned, this is no laughing matter,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister.“We will do everything within our power to apprehend, and pursue charges on those who make school-based threats. Protecting students is our greatest priority. We take school threats very seriously, if you see something suspicious, please contact us immediately.”
Anyone who makes a threat should go to jail – no matter how old or how young they may be.
