This is the moment police arrested a 15-year-old boy who they say threatened on a gaming site to bring his father’s assault weapon to his Florida school to shoot at least seven people.

Bodycam footage shows the officers at the teenager’s Holly Hill home after he is said to have written on the game platform Discord: ‘I Dalton Barnhart vow to bring my fathers m15 to school and kill seven people at a minimum.’

The article goes on to state the following:

The Seabreeze High School student, who was using a fake name, was charged with threatening to discharge a destructive device, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said Monday. He is understood to have been taken to juvenile jail.

The comment was reported to the FBI, and the FBI contacted local police after tracing his username FalconWarrior920 and internet address to his home.

According to the report, the teen admitted he made the statement but claimed it was a joke, and his mother told officers: “But he’s just a little kid playing a video game.”

“These kids say stuff like this all the time. It is a joke to them. It’s a game. He’s just a little boy, he didn’t do anything wrong. He’s not one of the crazy people out there doing stuff,” the mother said.
