A person claiming to be a student threatened on social media to “shoot up” an elite high school in Brooklyn — and police are now investigating the sick posts, cops said Sunday.

The alleged wannabe shooter vowed to not surrender to police and would “shoot through the windows to get them and before I do it I’ll send a link to my stream to everyone.”
The person then lists the names of more than a dozen students to be killed.
The building where the school is located contains several different schools.

“Last night, an unknown person posted a threat to one of the schools on our campus, Millennium Brooklyn High School, on a site called Omegle,” the message reads.
“The post appears copy and pasted from social media threats that have been made in previous months to schools throughout our area, but it does include the school name and the names of some students. We are taking the threat seriously…”
