Investigators say Kaitlyn Leigh Deshazo wrote the threatening message Wednesday on a bathroom stall door.

Deshazo faces two second-degree felony charges related to threatening to discharge a destructive device and making written threats to kill or do bodily harm.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco will hold a news conference to discuss the incident at 2 p.m.
