Police in the American state of California arrested two teenagers who allegedly wanted to arrange a mass shooting in school. About it reports TV channel ABC 7.
According to the detention order to the city of Fullerton, near Los Angeles, two 16-year-old high school students “were arrested for conspiracy to commit a crime”.
Information about the possible plan of the massacre was received in the local police from a woman. During a football match on the evening of 31 December, she heard the teenagers (their names are not called) were discussing a massacre. In particular, they mentioned the shooting in Columbine in 1999, wanting to “surpass it”.
The woman took a picture of two students and went with pictures to the police. The investigation revealed that the teenagers were surfing the net looking for information about the shootings at schools.
A similar situation occurred last week in the U.S. state of Florida. Then the police detained teenagers aged 13 and 14 years, allegedly planned to arrange a shooting at a school where they learn. During a search of their homes were found and confiscated weapons. Teenagers charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
During interrogation, both students also mentioned the school shooting of Columbine, Colorado. There, in April 1999, two teenagers killed 12 of their peers and teachers and then killed himself.
