MARRIOTT-SLATERVILLE, Utah (AP) - Weber County authorities say two teens are facing criminal charges in juvenile court after allegedly plotting a school shooting with another student.

Administrators at Venture Academy in Marriott-Slaterville learned of the alleged plot Oct. 19. Three 15-year-old students are accused of planning a drive-by shooting at the school.

As of Tuesday, one boy had been charged with threats to violence for trying to obtain ammunition. Another boy, who allegedly brought a knife and razor blades to school, was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon.

The third teen, who police say brought ammunition to school, hasn’t been charged. Bringing bullets to school isn’t illegal under state law.

Authorities haven’t yet located a gun.

All three boys have been “suspended indefinitely” from the school.
