Grandmother thwarts alleged school shooting plot in Washington

A would-be shooter in Washington tossed a coin to pick a school, police say. His grandmother foiled his plan.

A day before this week's school shooting in Parkland, Florida, a grandmother in Washington stopped her grandson from committing a similar crime, police said.

Police say they received a 911 call from the woman on Tuesday, February 13 after she found her grandson's journal and became alarmed by the contents.

An 18-year-old student was charged Thursday for allegedly planning a school shooting at ACES High School in Everett, Washington.

A potential school shooter was arrested this week after his grandmother notified police of his suspicious activity.

Even as the nation struggles to come to grips with the high school massacre in Florida, authorities have reported that apparent plans for two other school shootings have been foiled.

"It couldn't have been an easy thing for her to do, but boy, it was sure the right thing for her to do", said Andy Muntz of the Mukilteo School District. I need to get the biggest fatality number I possibly can. An orphaned 19-year-old with a troubled past took his own AR-15 rifle into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people and wounding 13 others.

"I need to make this shooting/bombing. infamous", the student wrote, according to the court documents.

"I've been reviewing many mass shootings/bombings (and attempted bombings)", the teenager added. "I'm learning from past shooters/bombers' mistakes, so I don't make the same ones".

The student is charged with attempted murder and assault of a police officer.

O'Connor attended Kamiak High School previous year before transferring to ACES Alternative School this fall. When the officer caught up to him, the court records state, he "spun around on the ground and "mule kicked" " the officer. The student was arrested at the school, and a knife and marijuana were found on his person.

"This is a case where the adage "see something, say something" potentially saved many lives", Everett Police Chief Dan Templeman said in a statement, referencing the teenager's grandmother.

O'Connor was booked at the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for attempted murder due to planning and taking substantial steps toward executing a school shooting.

Police officers secured a search warrant for O'Connor's room and discovered an AK-47 and journals detailing his plans.

Authorities say the rifle matches one used Monday to rob a convenience store, and that O'Connor wrote in his journal "about how powerful he felt and how scared the female cashier was at him pointing his gun at her".

The suspect made his first appearance in court Wednesday and is being held on $5 million bail.
