The Argentine Township Police department said that the force intercepted information on Oct. 28 about an alleged plan to carry out mass shootings at Linden High School and Linden Middle School.
The information was forwarded the FBI, who joined Argentine Township officers and Michigan State Police in launching an investigation and taking “immediate steps” to ensure public safety, the force added.
“As a result of the investigation, three suspects were identified and information was obtained concerned the related purchase of firearms and evidence of certain targets,” the Argentine Township police department said in a statement.
That led to felony charges against 18-year-old Ryan Stevens and Lamar Dukes and Cody Brewer, both 15 and charged as adults.
All three are facing charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and false report or threat of terrorism, according to the Argentine Township Police Department.
The three teens were arrested on Oct. 29 and never reached school property. They’re charged with conspiring to commit first-degree murder.
