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.
