Brevard County deputies are crediting two Facebook users for reporting a post that threatened a shooting at Walt Disney World.

Deputies said Derek Eitel, 23, threatened to shoot up Disney and hang himself if he got five “likes” on his post.

Eitel admitted to making the post, deputies said. He appeared in a Brevard County courtroom Wednesday.

Deputies said Eitel lives with his parents, who told deputies their son did not have access to their guns that are locked up inside the house.
