A Florida teen has been arrested and accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill a member of staff at his high school, authorities said Friday.

Nicholas Godfrey, 18, a student at Fivay High School in Hudson, was charged late Thursday with an application to the commission of the murder, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say the Duke sent out an Instagram message to one of the other Fivay student this week that said, ” I want to be with a man who could kill someone,” Fox 13 In Tampa reported.

According to researchers at Duke, said in another message, he would be the student with $100,000 in cash to kill an employee of the school, the station reported.

“No joke, I have to get him eliminated as soon as possible,” the Duke was accused of saying.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for the Instagram account and it resolved the IP address as that of her own husband’s home, Fox 13 reported.

When interviewed by detectives, the Duke was admitted to sending the messages, and handed over the phone that he’s used to it, the station reported.

“I want to thank the Pasco Sheriff’s Office and Corporal Josh Peters, for their intensive work and resources to be used for the detection and arrest of these students, Fivay principal Jason Joens said on Facebook.
