Two teenagers were arrested and charged with conspiring to kill faculty and students at a Long Island high school, police said Friday.
The teens - a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl - were arrested after police obtained the girl's cell phone, which showed the two had traded text messages about buying guns and killing people, and her computer, which revealed online searches for information about explosives and bomb making, the Suffolk County Police Department said.
The attacks were aimed at Connetquot High School in Bohemia, New York, where the girl is a student an the boy is a former student, the police department said in a statement Friday.
The girl was arrested last month and was released on her own recognizance, the police department said in a statement. The boy was arrested Thursday and will remain in jail until his next court date on June 8.
Calls to the school and school superintendent were not immediately returned. In 2007, two teenagers were arrested and charged with planning a similar attack at the same school.
