McALESTER, Okla. -- We're learning more about the woman who was arrested for threatening to shoot students at McAlester High School.

Earlier this week, Pittsburg County sheriff's deputies arrested 18-year-old Alexis Wilson. Deputies said Wilson reportedly told someone that she was "going to shoot 400 people for fun."

According to the arrest report, Wilson purchased a new AK-47 semi-automatic rifle. Authorities searched her bedroom and found the rifle with six magazines, a 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition.

Investigators learned that Wilson had been suspended from McAlester High before she dropped out for bringing a knife to school and having swastikas on some of her belongings.

Wilson has pleaded not guilty to the charge of felony terrorist hoax.
