Two Massachusetts men were arrested Monday after allegedly discussing on Facebook how they would carry out a Columbine-style shooting at their former high school, MyFoxBoston.com reported.
Natick Sands, 18, and Ryan Ringuette, 20, both of Attleboro, were arrested following an investigation by police and school officials. Both face charges of threatened use of a dangerous weapon at Attleboro High School.
According to police, a current student at the high school saw the alleged discussion between Sands and Ringuette on Facebook and contacted school officials, who immediately notified police.
The alleged discussion took place on the individual Facebook pages of the former students. A specific target was not mentioned in the discussions, and school officials do not believe that anyone at the school was in imminent danger.
Sands and Ringuette will be arraigned on Tuesday in Attleboro District Court.
