Teacher discovers student's 'detailed' plan for carrying out a deadly massacre in Florida

A Florida teacher reportedly discovered Monday a "detailed" plan to carry out a mass killing at a high school in northern Florida.


What are the details?

Baker County Sheriff's Office said that it detained an unnamed 15-year-old student after the teacher discovered plans in the teen's composition book.

The teen was taken into custody in connection with the incident, and later arrested and charged with making threats to kill and/or conduct a mass shooting, which is a second-degree felony, according to the sheriff's office. The teen was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Gainesville, Florida, after the investigation concluded.

The student was reportedly showing other students pages outlining "various strategies for carrying out" a massacre at the high school.
Investigators turned up six pages including "specific dates/times that a shooting should occur, the locations on campus in which the act(s) should be carried out, and the order in which certain people should be attacked."

The student reportedly admitted to a detective that he wrote multiple plans, but denied having any intention of ever going through with it.

In a release, Baker County Sheriff Scotty Rhoden said, "The cooperative effort between the Baker County School System and the Baker County Sheriff's Office to train and inform staff allowed for a quick response and removal of the student from campus."
"This is an important reminder for our children to 'See Something, Say Something'!" the release added. "Parents and guardians, please remind your children of the importance of the 'See Something, Say Something' message. As a community we will continue to work together to keep our children safe. May God continue to guide and protect everything we do to keep our schools a safe place to learn and grow."

In a statement on Facebook, the Baker County Sheriff's Office wrote:
On September 9th, 2019 a 15 year old Baker County High School student was arrested for making written threats to kill and/or conduct a mass shooting (second degree felony). The investigation began after a teacher confiscated a notebook from the juvenile, a sophomore who had shown other classmates pages within the book that outlined various strategies for carrying out a mass shooting at the high school. School Resource Deputies were immediately notified, and the suspect was removed from class without incident. After reviewing the contents of what had been handwritten within the notebook, Detectives responded to further investigate. Approximately six pages of detailed notes had been discovered in the student's composition book. Some of these notes included specific dates/times that a shooting should occur, the locations on campus in which the act(s) should be carried out, and the order in which certain people should be attacked. During an interview with a Detective, the juvenile admits to writing the multiple plans, but denies having any intention of ever going through with it. At the conclusion of that interview, the juvenile was placed under arrest & charged with the second degree felony. The juvenile will be transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) in Gainesville.
