Two high school students plotted to kill three staffers and as many students as possible in a mass shooting plot, police in South Pasadena, California, said.
But acting on information provided by officials at South Pasadena High School, authorities were able to foil the plan, police said.
“This is a prime example of school officials recognizing suspicious behavior. It was this information that helped prevent a horrific tragedy,” Sgt. Brian Solinsky said.
