Teen in Gun Raid Had Teacher List:
What do you get when you take a cache of illegally purchased guns add some explosive devices and throw in a list of teachers’ names and addresses? You get 18-year-old Colin McKenzie-Gude of Bethesda, Maryland.
It’s unknown yet if this was some kind of murder or school shooting plot. However McKenzie-Gude’s cache consisted of weapons that were bought by his father for him that are illegal for someone under 21 to own under Maryland law. His father, 62-year-old Joseph L. Gude, was also arrested for buying his son the illegal weapons.
What muddles things up is that McKenzie-Gude was on the rifle team for St. John’s College High School, a private school in Washington, D.C. The addresses for the teachers were all from St. John’s.
Then there’s the bomb making materials for which a second teen was also arrested. The second teen is an unnamed 17-year-old from Gaithersburg, MD. It’s alleged that the 17-year-old and McKenzie-Gude detonated homemade explosive devices in the woods.
And in case you were wondering how much explosives were found…
Detectives also recovered 50 pounds of chemicals, several gallons of liquid material and components that can be used to make homemade explosives, according to the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.
Too many coincidences if you ask me.
I’ll bring more to you as details become available and as time permits.
