VIDEO: Fla. Teen Planned School Massacre
Prosecutors recently released a cell phone video that shows a former Freedom High School student detailing his elaborate plot to blow up the school.
Last year when police searched the home of then-17-year-old Jared Cano, who was expelled from the school in March 2010, they found a manifesto that detailed his plans for an attack in August 2011 on the first day of school. Additionally, authorities discovered bomb-making material.
In the video footage, Cano outlines his plans to detonate bombs throughout Freedom High School, according to WTSP. He also mentioned that after the bombs went off, he would retrieve a stash of weapons hidden near the school and kill as many students as possible, as well as two teachers that Cano says wronged him.
Cano, who has pled no contest to charges of intending to harm others with a destructive device, will be sentenced on Dec. 5.
