A family who knows one of the accused plotters in the alleged plan to attack Landstown High School in Virginia Beach say that he was one who tipped off police to the plot.
The family, whose daughter dated the 15-year-old suspect, say that the boy reported the plot to authorities. During the course of the investigation the 15-year-old was also arrested for his alleged involvement in the plot.
This reminds me of the fabled plot to attack Marshfield High School in Massachusetts. In the plot one of the participants backed out after he got counseling and the ring leader went to police to deflect the blame from himself.
This boy could basically be caught up in someone else’s lies or he could be culpable. The police aren’t saying either way since the suspects are all minors.
If you know any of these suspects please do not use their names in the comments.
