Texas teen arrested after allegedly posting terrorist threats online

FORT WORTH -- A teen was arrested on July 1 after allegedly making terrorist threats on Facebook according to CBS Dallas/Fort Worth.

Nicholas Paul Amrine, 19, is accused of making threats against Convergence Church in Fort Worth. In one post on June 2, Amrine called out 13 people by their initials, reported the station. The post stated, "Working on my *expletive* list. I got 13 names. All I can say is I hope you GIP if these are your initials."

It's not clear what GIP might mean.

Another post said "Pretty soon you're going to regret ignoring my messages."

The following day Amrine posted, "All the kids that forgot about me are going to get what they deserve. I may have been hesitant in the past but next time u see me I will not hesitate about anything. It will be over in a flash, it will be over in a bang, u will see my face, and then nothing else ever again."

According to the station there was also a picture of Amrine holding a tactical rifle, along with a picture of Columbine school shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, calling them his heroes.

According to the arrest warrant, Amrine told one of the 13 identified people that he was going to carry out a mass shooting at 9:10 p.m. on July 22.

Amrine has since been released on a $10,000 bond the station reported. Afterward, he made an apology on Facebook. "That is not who I am and I would never do such a thing," the teen wrote, "The things I posted on Facebook were wrong and I should have never done that."
