Va. Students Charged with Conspiracy to Commit Capital Murder

March 20, 2012

Two boys in Washington County face charges of bringing a gun to an elementary school and planning to attack staff and other students.

Media outlets report that the 10-year-old and 12-year-old boys are being held at a juvenile detention center on charges of conspiracy to commit capital murder and possession of a firearm on school property.

Both boys are fifth-graders at Meadowview Elementary School. They haven't been identified because they are juveniles.

Commonwealth's Attorney Nicole Price says authorities believe the boys planned to kill or harm "multiple individuals" at the school and then flee.

Schools Superintendent Jim Sullivan says a teacher saw the gun in a book bag Friday after noticing the boys were acting suspiciously. She took the boys to the school's office. They were later arrested.
