The Washington Post states that the girl studying in Sidney Lanier Middle School in Fairfax had reportedly posted a message in December which consisted the words “Killing, “meet me in the library Tuesday”.

Later, the officer started questioning the students and started the work to get the IP Address of the user who posted the controversial message. However, the name of the student wasn’t disclosed as she was juvenile accused of crimes.
The Search Warrant also says that the girl has confessed to the authorities that she used the name of other student in posting the controversial message on Instagram. She was charged with “Threatening the School” and “Computer Harassment”. Spokesperson for Fairfax County School said that this threat was considered “Not Credible”.
