SNOW HILL, Md-- A shooting plot has been foiled at a Worcester County middle school.

Authorities released disturbing details about plans for a
school shooting at Snow Hill Middle.

Police say the threat was brought to light by several 
brave eight grade students. 

Friday afternoon, news of a mass school shooting plan
was brought forth by Worcester County officials. 
Authorities say two minors have been charged with
conspiracy to commit first degree murder.

"The investigation revealed the existence of a school 
shooting plot," says Sheriff Crisafulli. 

The sheriff's office could not say yet whether or not any 
weapons were collected as part of the evidence. 

Authorities say they were notified about the threat on 
March 22, but guardian Travis Ayers says he's upset 
there wasn't more transparency. 

"We're talking almost three weeks that this event has 
happened, there definitely should've been a notification
about this," says Ayres. 

The Sheriff's office says there is no longer a threat to 
the school and it's now safe to students.

(Corrections to newspaper typo's below: should read "It was sold in the 1990's." and "which used to be WDVM.") 

The change from WDMV to WGOP occurred when the corporation owning the station decided to assign the WDMV call letters to a station it operated on the western shore and assign that station's WGOP call to 540 in Pocomoke. -tk
