An 18-year-old Oklahoma high school student has been arrested on charges that he was plotting a mass shooting and bombing at his school, Tim Hudson at the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reports.
Sammie Eaglebear Chavez was taken into custody early Friday morning after learning about the alleged plot Thursday, the AP reports.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed Friday, cited by Laura Summers at the Tulsa World, the assistant principal of Bartlesville High School alerted the local police department.
A student reportedly told authorities that Chavez “tried to recruit other students to assist him with carrying out a plan to lure students into the school auditorium where he planned to begin shooting them after chaining the doors shut,” according to the affidavit.
