During a search of the teen’s home Monday, the statement said police found bottles containing gasoline, items that could be used as fuses, a torch, a machete, three propane tanks, two computers and even a black trench coat similar to the ones worn by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the teens who killed 12 students and a teacher in Columbine, Colo., in 1999 before killing themselves.
According to authorities, the youth said that he had been bullied and that he had “a lot of hatred” for kids at the school. He also admitted that he had been trying to acquire an assault weapon “that could hold as many rounds as possible” .
The attack was supposed to take place on April 20, 2010 to mark the 11th anniversary of the incident at Columbine High School. The police said that the teen’s parents were unaware of the items that he had collected or of his plan to attack the school.
The teen is currently under observation in a psychiatric facility.
