MONKTON, Md. (AP) - Baltimore County police say they’ve disrupted plans by a 16-year-old boy to shoot people at his school.

Police say the boy had been suspected of stealing from three vehicles on Saturday. When police interviewed him at his Monkton home, police say he told officers that he was planning to bring a handgun and two homemade explosives to George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, where he’s a 10th-grader. Police say the boy told investigators “he wanted to kill people.”

Police recovered a handgun and three crude, homemade explosives at the boy’s home.

The boy was sent for an emergency psychiatric evaluation and is being held at a juvenile detention facility. Police say he faces several juvenile charges. Police don’t believe anyone else was involved in the school shooting plans.
