Earlier today two students at Combs High School were arrested after they had set up a Go Fund Me account to raise money for ammunition in order to “shoot up Combs High School”.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, a student reported to school officials that they had overheard two students talking about bringing a gun to school. Officers also say that a student had said that they were going to file the serial numbers off of a gun and bring it into school.
“The site explained that ammunition was expensive and they needed help to shoot up Combs High School,” PCSO said in a statement.
The GoFundMe account has since been removed, deputies said.
Both students have been arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit terrorism and interference or disruption of an education institution.
Gayle A Blanchard Superintendent of Combs released the following statement to parents regarding the incident.
