A quick-thinking kid upended the plot of two armed fifth-graders to lure several elementary-school classmates off-campus and then kill them, after he learned of the plan and told school officials.
They told police they stole a semi-automatic gun, ammunition clip and 3.25-inch knife in order to kill a girl they considered rude and annoying, CNN reported.
The boys also told police of their plans to “get,” or kill, six other classmates at the school.
Specifically, the 11-year-old suspect was going to stab the girl off-campus, while the 10-year-old would frighten away responders with the handgun, CNN said.
“Yes, I just want her dead,” the younger suspect told police, according to the CNN report.
Police documents said he had brought both the gun and knife to school.
