"Mr. Cotton you need to go get your AK-47 and I will get my AR-15 and we can kill everyone at school."
DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — A 17-year-old boy was arrested on felony charges for allegedly writing a threat to kill after a student found a handwritten message at a Walton County school.
A student at "In10sity" Magnet School at the Wise Center on Thursday found a composition notebook in a classroom with a note that said: "Mr. Cotton you need to go get your AK-47 and I will get my AR-15 and we can kill everyone at school,” according to a press release from the Walton County Sheriff's Office.
The entire campus was placed on a temporary restriction until after a search was conducted and no weapons were found.
Investigators identified the 17-year-old suspect and he confessed to investigators and school administrators that he wrote the note.
He was taken to the Walton County Jail to be booked and transferred to a state Department of Juvenile Justice facility.
