Monroe police thwart Columbine-style attack
Police say a 15-year-old student planned to carry out an attack on Monroe-Woodbury High School on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre.
Investigators say the teenager admitted to plotting a Columbine-style attack set for April 20 in retaliation for being teased by several Monroe-Woodbury students.
However, Monroe-Woodbury Superintendent Joseph DiLorenzo says he has no knowledge of the student complaining to staff about being bullied.
Police say they found water bottles filled with gasoline, a blow torch and a black trench coat at the student's home. He is being held in a psychiatric hospital for evaluation.
