Fifth-grade boys' plot to kill a classmate thwarted

(CNN) -- Two fifth-grade boys armed with a stolen semi-automatic gun, ammunition clip and knife plotted to kill a classmate in Washington state but were thwarted when another student informed a school employee, authorities said Thursday.


The two boys, who told police they considered the girl rude and annoying, won't be tried as adults and will be in court next Wednesday for a capacity hearing, said Tim Rasmussen, the Stevens County prosecuting attorney.


The two boys, ages 10 and 11, told authorities that they were also going to kill, or "get," six more students at Fort Colville Elementary School in Colville, Washington, and even identified them from a class list provided by school employees, according to court documents.


The boys' plan called for the older to stab the girl off-campus with a 3.25-inch knife last week, and the younger boy would scare off any responders with a .45-caliber Remington 1911 semi-automatic handgun, court documents said.


The younger boy had been in "a short dating relationship" with the girl, but he told authorities that "she's rude and always made fun of me and my friends," court papers said.
"Yes, I just want her dead," the younger boy told authorities. He brought the gun and knife to school, documents said.


The older boy had been friends with the girl for several months, but he wanted to kill her because she picked on and annoyed him, court papers said.

"Yes, and I wanted to kill her alone at first," the older boy told a police officer.

There is something really broken about a kid who thinks taking a life is fair retribution for someone being "rude" to him.

I agree. Only cops are allowed to think like that.

The only thing that stops a bad 5th-grader with a gun is a good fifth-grader with a gun.

I really hope that was meant satirically :-0

Although knowing the gun nutters here...


As much as I like to shoot and have owned quite a few firearms I am glad to now live where not every nutter is armed to the teeth.

Why is this political or controversial?

It belongs on the True Crime forum.
