Kan. Teen Accused of Planning School Shooting

KSAL StaffJanuary 15, 2014

A Topeka teenager is charged with four felonies in what the Shawnee County District Attorney calls a planned school shooting.

The 17-year-old was charged Wednesday with four counts of soliciting first-degree murder.

District Attorney Chad Taylor says the teen was planning to shoot two administrators at Topeka West High School, a Topeka police officer and a school police officer working at the high school. Taylor did not release his name.

Taylor says the teenager was arrested Tuesday evening outside Topeka. He has a detention hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

Taylor wouldn’t release many details about the alleged plan but said the threat was viable and the situation developed in mid-December.

The defendant is being charged as a juvenile but Taylor says he’ll seek to have him tried as an adult.
