Parents in Michigan have turned in their own son in order to stop a school shooting plot from unfolding. The 15-year-old is being accused of plotting to shoot up his high school.
“He came to us and said that he’s been really upset and that he’s been planning to do something bad,” his stepfather said. “It was a big shock.” His stepfather also said “he wanted to blow the school up on top of” those who had hurt him.
The boy’s name will be withheld because he’s a minor, but after his terrifying confession, his mother and father took the boy to the sheriff’s office, according to ABC 13.
School officials even canceled classes on Monday as investigators worked to learn more about the teen’s plot.
PPPS will be closed on Monday, March 19, 2018, due to a threat. Staff and students are not to report.

The teen was arraigned Monday afternoon on eight criminal charges, including two counts of larceny of firearms; two counts of possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle; two counts of felony firearm; a felony count of attempted manufacture of explosives; and a misdemeanor count of possession of a Molotov cocktail explosive device.
According to his family, the situation began to escalate when a photo of the teen in his underwear taken last summer somehow began to circulate at school. Bullies allegedly “shoved him into lockers, punched him in the throat (and) knocked him down with no remorse,” his stepfather said. “Since that point, it’s just been relentless.”
Sheriff Daniel Abbott praised the boy’s parents, who he said helped prevent a “very close call.” The sheriff’s office believes the plot was going to be carried out Monday.
