MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - An investigation is underway after a threat on social media was made towards several South Florida schools.

Just this week two more students have been arrested for the crime.

A comment was left on an Instagram account from user kill_yokidsssss reading in part, “ATTENTION! IF YOU DONT WANNA LOSE YOUR CHILD DONT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL TMR & FRIDAY.”

The comment listed several schools in Miami-Dade and Broward County including:

  • Norland Middle School
  • Brownsville Middle School
  • Madison Middle School
  • North Dade [Middle School]
  • Horace Mann Middle School
  • Carol City Middle School
  • Carol City High School
  • North Miami Senior High School
  • Miramar High School
  • Miami Central High School

7News viewers sent a screenshot of the comment on Wednesday night.

Students at Miramar High School were told that this was a crime, but some still aren’t getting it.

“I don’t think it sticks in nobody’s head, ’cause they just keep doing it,” said a student.

According to Broward County Public Schools, Miramar High School is working with law enforcement.

Parents and staff were notified of the threat.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” one parent said. “It’s getting out of hand.”

Over in Pompano Beach, another threat was posted on social media.

According to BSO, 14-year-old Mehdi Idriss threatened other students at the school through a Snapchat group text on Tuesday. Some of the messages included a list of other students saying they were on his “list” and that he would bring a gun to school Wednesday.

According to the arrest report, one of the messages said, “I will shoot.”

He told the detectives that arrested him it was all a joke, but he sure wasn’t laughing in court Wednesday, and neither was the judge.

“A message to one that is listening, this sort of offense is not going to be tolerated according to the department’s risk assessment,” said the judge.

“We, as an organization, do not consider any form of threat to our schools as some form of humor,” said Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony.

Tony has a message for students who are not getting the message.

“We are going to ultimately execute an arrest, put handcuffs on people, and it is going to change your life for the negative forever,” said Tony.
