(CBS Atlanta)

ATLANTA, Ga (AP) — A MARTA employee has been suspended after officials believe she tweeted a threat against President-elect Donald Trump.

News outlets report an unidentified woman with the Twitter handle “Yellabud” tweeted “#AssassinateTrump,” writing that she wished she could do it herself. Underneath the post was a picture showing Trump dead and riddled with bullets.

The Twitter account has since been deleted.

MARTA spokeswoman Alisa Jackson said Tuesday that the part-time employee had been placed on administrative leave as the incident is investigated.
