Three seniors at Taylor (TX) High School were arrested on charges of terroristic threat after students reported to school authorities the trio's conversation about committing a school shooting, according to KHOU-TV.
Police arrested three boys—each one 17 years of age—after a student overheard them discussing detailed plans to coordinate an active shooting at the school involving explosives and firearms.
After hearing the reports of the shooting plans, a Taylor detective and a school resource officer that were on campus were able to quickly investigate the claims and arrest all three of the students, according to KHOU.
The school district posted on its Facebook page, "As soon as we learned about the threatening comment, we immediately involved the Taylor Police Department and they quickly investigated the situation. The case is still under investigation, but there is no danger to students. As this investigation is ongoing and involves students, we are limited to the details we can provide."
