An 18 year-old Woman is Arrested for Making Threat Against a Knox County School

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a teen after she threatened to “shoot up” a school in Farragut.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office says 18 year-old Amina Fatima Albaraqi posted a picture of a gun to social media and said “shoot up Farragut” and “shoot up the school.” KCSO says deputies took her into custody with the help of special agents from the Tennessee Office of Homeland Security and KCS school security.
