WOODSTOCK, Va. (AP) - A teenager accused of plotting a school attack in Shenandoah County will be tried as an adult.

Aaron Trump of Edinburg is charged with making threats or false threats to damage or bomb buildings, manufacturing or possessing explosives, and committing, conspiring, aiding and abetting acts of terrorism.

The Daily News-Record reports that Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge William Logan Jr. decided Tuesday that Trump should be tried as an adult in circuit court.

Police arrested Trump on Sept. 27. He's accused of plotting an attack against Stonewall Jackson High School in Quicksburg. He was 17 years old at the time.

Trump recently was moved from a juvenile detention center to the Shenandoah County Jail after he turned 18.
