Four students were arrested Friday in Tuolumne, California, after police discovered a “detailed” plan to “shoot and kill as many people as possible” at a local high school, the sheriff said.
Tuolumne County Sheriff James Mele didn’t identify the suspects in a news conference Saturday, although he said they were students at Summerville High School, where the alleged shooting was to have taken place, and that they were male. They haven’t yet been charged.
Other students at Summerville in Tuolumne, about 55 miles east of Stockton, heard the suspects discussing the shooting last week, so they told school staff, Mele said. The school then contacted the sheriff’s office.
“Detectives located evidence verifying a plot to shoot staff and students at Summerville High School,” Mele said. “The suspects’ plan was very detailed in nature and included names of would-be victims, locations and the methods in which the plan was to be carried out.”
The “common denominator” of possible victims, Mele said, was their affiliation with Summerville.
