A security guard who worked Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival last weekend is accused of making fake mass shooting threats to get out of work early.

Janya Williams, 18, allegedly sent her supervisor an anonymous message via TextNow Friday afternoon that said, “Mass shooting at 4pm location Lollapalooza. We have 150 targets.”

When the supervisor told the team about the threat, Williams allegedly told the supervisor that her sister had seen a similar threat on Facebook.

The FBI, however, reportedly traced the TextNow message back to Williams’ IP address and iCloud {snip}

She allegedly admitted to faking the threats “because she wanted to leave work early” {snip}
