A student at a Baltimore area high school gathered home-made explosives and guns in his home with the intention of killing fellow students, Baltimore County Police said Monday.
The sophomore at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson, MD was interviewed as a suspect in a series of vehicle break-ins.
When police talked to the 16-year old male, they found out about the explosive devices and his plans for the school. In a statement posted on the Baltimore County police website, Chief Jim Johnson attributed the discovery to “exceptional” police work by the responding officers.
The boy has been charged as a juvenile with possession of a destructive device, theft, and gun charges. It is not immediately clear whether he has a lawyer.
