Alexis Wilson was working an afternoon shift at the local Pizza Inn in McAlester, Oklahoma, on Sunday, when she pulled a co-worker aside to boast about her new gun.
The slight 18-year-old with large brown eyes clutched her iPhone and pressed play on a video of her shooting a newly purchased AK-47, according to an incident report. Then Wilson told the other teenage waitress how much she resented the people at her old school – allegedly adding that she wanted to “shoot 400 people for fun.”

On Facebook, Wilson had liked a documentary about the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.
