18-Year-Old Male Arrested After Plans Found for ACES School Shooting
From the Everett Police Department Press Release:
“At about 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, a grandmother called 911 to report what she believed were upcoming and credible threats by her 18-year-old grandson to shoot students at his high school.
Officers responded to the 10600 block of Holly Dr, met with the grandmother, and were shown excerpts of the grandson’s journal. Officers were also told the grandson had a rifle stored in a guitar case. As officers reviewed copies of the journal, they were alarmed at the statements and detailed plans to shoot students and use homemade explosive devices at ACES High School [on Holly Drive].
With the information, officers contacted ACES High School to advise them of the threat and arrested the grandson at the school. During a search incident to arrest, officers found marijuana and a knife on his person.
He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for attempted murder due to planning and taking substantial steps toward executing a school shooting.
Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit responded to the grandmother’s house where they served a search warrant to seize the journal, rifle, military styled inert grenades, and other evidentiary items.”
