Police: 3 Texas teenagers arrested in school attack plot

TAYLOR, Texas (AP) — Three Texas high school seniors were arrested Wednesday after they were overheard discussing plans to launch an attack at school using explosives and firearms, police said.

Taylor ISD superintendent Keith Brown said students at Taylor High School overheard the 17-year-old boys discussing their alleged plans and notified administrators.

A Taylor police detective and a school resource officer who were on campus at the time arrested the three and charged each with making a terroristic threat, a misdemeanor.

The teens were taken to the Williamson County jail, about 30 miles north of Austin. Two remained in custody Thursday.
