VIDEO: Father Thwarts Teen Girl’s School Massacre Plot, Police Say
An 18-year-old student meticulously planned a mass shooting at her high school in which she intended to die, authorities in Maryland said Monday. Her father alerted authorities after reading about the plot in her diary.
A shotgun, ammunition and bomb-making materials including nails and fireworks were found at Nichole Cevario's home in Thurmont on Thursday, Frederick County Sheriff Charles Jenkins said at a news conference, the Associated Press reports.
Cevario was removed from the classroom and turned over to investigators, the Frederick County sheriff's office said in a statement. Cevario was later taken from the school to a hospital for an emergency evaluation and remains hospitalized, officials said.
