FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Two Orange County teenagers arrested on suspicion of plotting a shooting at their school have been suspended and face an expulsion hearing.

The students at Troy High in Fullerton were arrested last week after a schoolmate overheard them talking about plans to “shoot up” the campus. Police found that the suspects had done internet research on prior school shootings and weapons.

Police Sgt. Jon Radus said Monday that the boys, both 16, are suspended.

Fullerton Joint Union High School District officials did not return phone calls on when the expulsion hearing might be held for the teens.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/2lGQ0z4 ) they could face charges including making criminal threats and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Their names have not been released because they are minors.
