According to the Spokesman-Review, a 10 and 11-year-old boy remained in police custody Thursday, days after their alleged plot to kill a 10-year-old female classmate at Fort Colville Elementary School was discovered. The boys face charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, tampering with a witness and conspiracy to possess a firearm.
The boys were arrested Feb. 7 at their elementary school. After they were arrested, they were reportedly overheard saying ‘”I don’t care when I get out of jail, I’m going to come back and kill them,” the Spokesman reported.
The boys’ alleged plot was discovered when a school staff member found a .45-caliber pistol, a full ammunition clip and a knife in one of their backpacks after being tipped off by another student. Staff members asked the 10-year-old boy why he had the gun. The boy reportedly told staff he was going to “get” an 11-year-old classmate who had been mean to them and “do her in.” The Spokesman reported the two planned to stab the girl with a knife and then keep everyone else a bay with the gun.
The boys admitted to the teacher that there were other students they wanted to kill. They also allegedly admitted to the teacher they were going to kill the girl on the day the weapons were found.
