Police on Long Island say they have questioned a 12-year-old boy about an alleged "hit list" of fellow students, school faculty, and family members.

Newsday says Glen Cove police interviewed the student and his mother Thursday. His home was checked for weapons, but none was found.

Glen Cove Det. Lt. John Nagle says at this point, the student isn't being charged with a crime. The student hasn't been identified.

He says there's no history of the child ever being violent. Police say they don't think he intended to follow through.

A statement on the school district's website says the student has been suspended until the outcome of a superintendent's hearing.

Police say all the adults on the list were notified, along with the parents of the children on it.
