An Ohio teenager named Alyssa Douglas tweeted last night: “Someone needs to assassinate Obama…like ASAP.”

The 16-year-old’s message encouraging violence against the president was retweeted by several Twitter users around the time that President Barack Obama was giving his speech to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The issue is not being taken lightly, and according to reports from News.Cincinnati, the Clinton Massie School District, where Douglas is a high school student, had a meeting with her and her parents.

The Secret Service is also investigating the threat, and the findings will be reported to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Southern District of Ohio.
