Who is Connor Pruitt ?

Two Florida high school students have been arrested after “conspiring to carry out mass shootings after studying the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.”

The two boys, Phillip Bird, 14, and Connor Pruitt, 13, who are eighth-graders at Harns Marsh High School in Lehigh Acres, near Fort Myers, were arrested Thursday on charges of conspiracy to commit a mass shooting.

The alleged shooting plan was discovered after a student tipped off an eighth grade teacher Wednesday, claiming that one of his classmates had a gun in his backpack.

Arrested and Charged

Eighth-graders Phillip Bird, 14, and Connor Pruitt, 13, were arrested Thursday on charges of conspiracy to commit a mass shooting at Harns Marsh High School in Lehigh Acres, Florida.

The school resource officer and administration were alerted to the potential threat that led to an investigation by officers.

They did not find a weapon in the student’s backpack, but they did find a map of the school with markings showing each of the school’s security cameras.

Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said police also discovered other “disturbing evidence” after a search of the suspects’ homes, including a handgun and several knives.

At a news conference, Sheriff Marceno said: ‘Detectives learned that students were interested in the Columbine High School shooting.

“They were studying hard to learn more about the incident and the shooters.

“Detectives also learned that the students were trying to learn how to build tube bombs and how to buy firearms on the black market.”

The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting and attempted bombing that occurred on April 20, 1999 in Columbine, Colorado.

The two shooters, 12th graders Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, 18 and 17, murdered 12 students and a teacher and later committed suicide.

It was the deadliest mass shooting at a US high school until 2018, when 17 people were killed in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which is approximately 120 miles away from Lehigh Acres.

A tip from a fellow student led to the discovery of a map of the school with markings showing the school’s security cameras and other “ disturbing evidence, ” including a pistol and several knives found in the homes of the suspects. In the photo: Deputies searching one of the houses.

Sherrif Marceno said he is certain that police intervention prevented another deadly school shooting from happening, saying: ‘This could have turned out to be disastrous. We were a second from a Columbine here.

He continued: ‘I am confident that my team of dedicated agents and detectives acted promptly, investigated thoroughly and prevented a very violent and dangerous act from taking place.

“This could have been the next Parkland massacre, but we stopped them in the planning stages.”

The two high school students, who the sheriff said were “well known” to police as officers had responded to calls to their homes nearly 80 times in total, will be charged with conspiracy to commit a mass shooting.

The couple will be evaluated at a mental health center and Sherrif Marceno said legal investigators will investigate a risk protection order, which restricts access to firearms for those who pose a danger to themselves or others.
