A Florida middle school student was arrested last week after allegedly making a "kill list" of her fellow students on Snapchat.

The 12-year-old girl, whom authorities did not identify, was arrested Friday and charged with making written death threats and one count of falsely reporting a firearm after a parent and another student alerted officials to the list's existence.

The girl, a student at Falcon Cove Middle School in Weston, Fla., reportedly admitted to making false threats after being detained by police.

"Around 7 p.m. Dec. 6, a Falcon Cove Middle School student and her parent notified deputies in the Broward Sheriff’s Office Weston district of a threat posted on Snapchat. The threat included a death list with student names from Falcon Cove Middle School. Another threat was posted to the social media site later Friday afternoon that indicated the students were not safe and that they would be killed on Monday, Dec. 9," the Broward County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

"[Sheriff's office] detectives from the Threat Management Unit and Real Time Crime Center were able to identify the source of the threats Friday evening. The 12-year-old girl, a student at Falcon Cove Middle School, confirmed she made the false threats," it continued.

A spokesperson for Broward County Public Schools told CNN that the middle school was under normal operations on Monday following the arrest.
