Two South Pasadena Teen Students Arrested For Mass Shooting Plot

Posted By Los Angeles Criminal Lawyer || 26-Aug-2014

Two South Pasadena High School students have been arrested after hatching out a very specific mass school shooting plot to kill as many people as possible. Police officials launched an investigation on the two teens, ages 16 and 17, on a tip received from the South Pasadena High School administers.

Search warrants were served at the boys' home but no weapons were found and there was no specific target date for the attack confirmed. The boys' are being held on suspicion of conspiracy and criminal threats. The names of the two boys have not be released, but the parents of the boys have made public apologies to the members of the community and to the students, teachers and parents of the school saying that they do not condone this type of behavior.

The investigation was conducted with the help of the FBI by reviewing the boys' social networking posts and internet surveillance. The boys' had researched weaponry, explosives and methods for disarming people. Law enforcement officials probed and found out that the two boys had come up with a detailed plan on how they would accomplish their goal.

Apparently the boys did not have specific people targeted, they were just planning on killing as many people as possible. After interrogating questions the boys also stated that they would have been willing to die if it came down to a police shootout in the end. For now, the boys are in police custody and Pasadena High School is under much heavier police supervision for the time being.
