An alert student has prevented a mass shooting in Calexico, California.
The unnamed student went to the principal on Friday to report hearing of a plot to mass murder people at the school. Police responded immediately and several students confirmed the rumor.
Calexico Police Lieutenant Gonzalo Gerardo said “Students started coming forward. Because there was some mass text messaging going around throughout the school between the students that there was going to be a school shooting.” He said three students had created a well thought out, very specific plan. One suspect was arrested Friday, another on Saturday and the third on Tuesday morning,
Police say bullying may have been a factor, but that it’s no excuse for planning to take lives. The District Attorney will now decide whether to charge the students as adults in the case. Source: KYMA
