HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed juvenile charges against two teens accused of plotting to attack a Kansas high school.

The Hutchinson News reports (https://bit.ly/1QHNZt4 ) that the 15-year-old and 14-year-old Hutchinson students were taken into custody Tuesday. They were charged Wednesday as juveniles with conspiracy to commit capital murder against more than one person at Hutchinson High School.

Police say the suspected plot included plans for a pipe bomb and named specific faculty members as the first targets.

Details in the complaint allege the pair wrote plans for the bombs, disassembled fireworks to obtain gunpowder and made blasting caps to trigger them.

Police say a student informed Hutchinson High School administration of the alleged plot, and the high school contacted police.
