5 arrested after Columbine-style threat found on MySpace

first_imgRIVERTON, Kan. – Five teenage boys accused of plotting a shooting rampage at their high school on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre were arrested Thursday after a message authorities said warned of a gun attack appeared on the Web site MySpace.com. Sheriff’s deputies found guns, ammunition, knives and coded messages in the bedroom of one suspect, Sheriff Steve Norman said. Authorities also found documents about firearms and references to Armageddon in two suspects’ school lockers. Norman said he would ask prosecutors to bring charges of conspiracy to commit murder against the teens, ages 16 to 18. Deputies’ interviews with the suspects indicated they planned to wear black trench coats and disable the school’s camera system before starting the attack between noon and 1 p.m. Thursday, Norman said. The suspects apparently had been plotting since the beginning of the school year. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
