BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky high school student has been arrested in what authorities are calling a school shooting plot with other students.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports 18-year-old Rosalio Grajeda was arrested Thursday on a felony charge of second-degree terroristic threatening in the reported plan to carry out a school shooting at Bowling Green High School.

Bowling Green police detective Ryan Dillon said in the arrest citation that Grajeda acknowledged a plot to cause harm and confessed involvement and research of past school shootings.

Bowling Green Independent School District Superintendent Gary Fields said in a statement Thursday that students reported a potential threat to administrators, triggering the investigation.

The other students believed involved are juveniles who haven’t yet been charged. The investigation is ongoing.

It’s unclear if Grajeda has a lawyer.
