Washington Grandmother Foils Teen’s Plot to Carry Out School Shooting

Authorities in Washington arrested an 18-year-old man on Tuesday who was said to be planning an attack on a school. The alleged plan was foiled by his grandmother.

Joshua O’Connor may have been the next school gunman. But then his grandmother, Cathi O’Connor, called 911.

“I’m finding journal entries from my grandson,” Cathi told 911 dispatchers. “He’s planning on having a mass shooting at one of the high schools.”

Cathi called police when she discovered a note in her grandson’s journal that read in part: “I’m preparing myself for a school shooting. I can’t wait. My aim has gotten much more accurate.”

“It couldn’t have been an easy thing for her to do, but boy, it was sure the right thing for her to do,” said Andy Muntz of the Mukilteo School District.
