A third suspect has been charged in relation to the plot to attack Quartz Hill High School in California. It seems like that the third suspect may not have been directly involved with the original plot. This suspect was arrested for making threats against two students over the telephone to the students that he wanted to join the other two and continue their plot to kill students at Quartz Hill High School. The suspect is a 16-year-old Quartz Hill High student who is a friend of the original suspects. The latest suspect also threatened to kill his parents. The phone calls were made while the suspect was visiting a relative in another part of the state.
The boy appeared in Sylmar Juvenile Court on Friday to be arraigned on five counts of making criminal threats against his parents, the two students he talked to on the telephone and Quartz Hill High School students in general.
Still no word on if the original suspects will be tried as adults.
