Court documents: Washington teen researched shooting up school on a school-issued laptop
WEST RICHLAND, Wash. - A 13-year-old boy who planned to "shoot-up" a school researched plans on his school-issued ChromeBook, according to details contained in an arrest report.
The 13-year-old student from Enterprise Middle School is being held in the Benton-Franklin Juvenile Detention Center after being arrested over the weekend. He’s accused of making threats to kill others at his school.
According to the arrest report, the 13-year-old searched things like "selling of body parts, different varieties of guns, urban armory, homemade body armor, and school shooting memes."
Authorities say the teen also told two friends about his plans to shoot people at the school and asked if they wanted to help him.
The witnesses told police that they were told they could also help by serving as lookouts.
Court documents say the teen threatened the witnesses if they told anyone about his plans.
Court documents also show that the teen had access to firearms, and that he showed one friend a couple of guns he said he would use in the shooting.
Prosecutors have not charged the boy with any crime yet.
