Man Accused Of Making Facebook Threat To "Shoot Up Disney"

(Brevard County, FL)  --  A Florida man is accused of making a social media threat to carry out a mass shooting at Walt Disney World. 

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office says that 23-year-old Derek Eitel was in a Facebook chat group on Tuesday when he posted the message, "5 likes and I'll go shoot up Disney and hang myself." That was visible to more than 800 members in the chat group, two of whom reported what Eitel said to authorities. 

He's charged with making written threats to kill or do bodily harm with the message that was posted two years to the day after the deadly mass shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub.
