GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – One woman in Grande Prairie is facing charges after allegedly threatening to shoot up her school on social media.

Just before 8:00 a.m. on, May 7th, the Grande Prairie RCMP received a tip that a local resident had posted a threat on social media, threatening to shoot up her school. The post was viewed internationally and was reported to Mounties by multiple police agencies in Canada and the United States, including the FBI.

Police quickly located the suspect in the Clairmont area and she was arrested without incident. 19-year-old Grande Prairie resident Morgan Cullen has been charged with Uttering Threats.
