3 teen boy arrested for plotting shoot people in Michigan schools.

Three Michigan teens planned to commit mass murder by shooting up two local schools in October, but officials were tipped off and the plot was disrupted, police said Saturday. Three teenage boys are charged with conspiring to shoot people at two Michigan schools.Argentine Township Police Chief Dan Allen said police intercepted information Oct. 28 about the alleged plot in the Linden district, 20 miles south of Flint. Ryan Stevens, 18, Lamar Dukes, 15, and Cody Brewer, 15, were each charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree premeditated murder and false report or threat of terrorism, according to FOX66. The alleged plan was to be carried out on Oct. 30 at Linden High School and Linden Middle School. “After I reviewed it, I felt all the information there was credible and we just had to track down the individuals that were involved,” Allen told MLive.com. “There were potential targets at the high school and the middle school. From what we gathered they didn’t really care who else got in the way either.” Authorities first apprehended Stevens, a former Linden Community Schools student.

After looking at Stevens’ phone, officials linked Dukes and Brewer to the threat, MLive.com reported. “After becoming aware of the information, we worked with law enforcement, and within our district’s emergency procedures, to ensure the safety of our students and staff,” Ciesielski said in the statement published on WXYZ. “The quick actions of our administrative staff, and law enforcement officials, helped to keep our schools out of harm’s way.” The teens were arrested the next day, but information about the case was not released until police and the FBI were satisfied that everyone involved was in custody, Allen said. The conspiracy charge is punishable by life in prison; the terrorism charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. “Sadly, these things happen a lot across the country and you have to take them seriously,” Allen said. “I took it seriously.

The Linden community is still reeling after a plot to carry out a deadly school shooting there resulted in the arrest of three teens, with school officials defending their actions in letting law enforcement take the lead in how the community was notified. That information was presented to Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton, who authorized felony charges against three males, identified as 18-year-old Ryan William Stevens of Linden, 15-year-old Lamar Michael Dukes of West Bloomfield and 15-year-old Cody Anthony Brewer of Wolverine Lake.
