Cops: Teen Said He’d Shoot Pa. School, Guns Found

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Police have seized two handguns from the bedroom of a teen they say threatened a shooting at his suburban Philadelphia high school a week after the mass killing at a Connecticut elementary school.

Northampton Township police say the Council Rock South High School ninth-grader was taken into custody Thursday after fellow students reported he made threatening statements.

Detective Sgt. Bill Klein says two 9 mm handguns were in plain sight in the boy’s bedroom when police went to his home.

Klein says police treated the threat as credible from the start but weren’t sure if the 14-year-old had the means to carry out an attack until searching the home.

The high school canceled classes Friday, but Klein says it appears no other students were involved in the threats.
