Minnesota Teen Faces Attempted Murder Charges in Massacre Plot

A 17-year old Waseca, Minnesota teenager is facing multiple charges, including attempted murder, when he was arrested following the discovery of detailed notes laying out his plan and a storage locker filled with firearms and bomb-making materials.

According to police, John David LaDue planned his attack for April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine massacre, but couldn’t carry out his plans because it fell on Easter Sunday.

LaDue allegedly had planned to kill his family, set fire to the school, kill emergency responders, and then shoot everyone in the school.

LaDue had been brought in for questioning following a tip of a suspicious looking individual near the storage lockers where part of his arsenal was found.
