A Georgia woman was taken into custody after allegedly writing a Facebook post that reportedly incited people to kill white police officers, WXIA-TV reports.

Police say that Ebony Monique Dickens, under the Facebook name of Tiffany Milan, posted the statement to Facebook on Monday evening, saying in part, ‚ÄúAll Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW‚ĶDeath to all white cops nationwide.‚ÄĚ

According to the news station, the Atlanta Police Department alerted police in East Point, Ga., once it was determined that the message came from that area and it was traced back to Dickens.

Dickens has been charged with one count of dissemination of information to facilitate terrorist threats and is in custody as she awaits her first court appearance, WXIA-TV notes.

The post also drew the attention of the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, who are investigating the case, according to the station.
