POLICE SAY MINNESOTA TEEN MADE BOMBS & STOCKPILED GUNS
In preparation for school massacre

May 02, 2014




Waseka, Minn. Police Captain Chris Markeson at Thursday news conference explaining details surrounding the arrest of John David LaDue, 17. CLICK TO ENLARGE
(WASECA, MINN.) -- Police say a Minnesota teen who was fascinated by school mass murderers planned his own murderous rampage in rural Waseca.

Among other things police say the teen, identified as John David LaDue, 17, had plotted to murder his entire family before bombing his high school and shooting and killing any surviving students.

Police said during a news conference Thursday:

~ LaDue had completed bombs, several firearms and had ammo ready to go for the attack before he was arrested Tuesday evening after a suspicious neighbor saw the boy enter a storage unit.

~ LaDue was "fully prepared and ready to go," if his plan hadn't been discovered this week.

~ Police leaned a lot about what had been in the planning stages after reading a 180-page notebook of La Due's that was filled with details of his plan and from other school shootings like Sandy Hook and Columbine.

~ LaDue admired Columbine killers Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, but thought their plan was faulty and promised one much bigger. LaDue planned to carry out his attack on April 20, the same day as the Columbine killings in 1999, but was forced to wait after the date fell on Easter Sunday.

~ The 11th grader told police after his arrest that he planned to shoot his sister, mom and dad with a .22-caliber rifle before he went to a rural field and set a fire to distract police and then he would go to Waseca Junior and Senior High School where he would toss Molotov cocktails and explode pressure-cooker bombs to try and kill “as many students as he could” in the cafeteria during lunchtime.

~ LaDue, according to the notebook of his plan, was going to kill the school resource officer before continuing on to kill other students. He was prepared to be gunned down by a SWAT Team.

Officers arrested the teen Tuesday after he was reported as a suspicious person at the storage unit where he kept many of his materials.

Inside the unit police say they found ammunition boxes, pyrotechnic chemicals, a pressure-cooker, steel ball bearings and gunpowder and then at the boy's home they found an SKS assault rifle and 400 rounds of ammo, a Beretta 9-mm semi-auto handgun and a safe that contained several other guns.

LaDue appeared in court appeared in court Thursday on four counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted criminal damage to property and six counts of possession of an explosive or incendiary device.

Some About 1,000 students attend the school he had targeted.
