Teens Charged in South Pasadena High Murder Plot Released to Parents

Two teens were arrested last month in connection with plotting to kill staff and students at South Pasadena High School

Two teens accused of plotting a shooting at South Pasadena High School are going home under house arrest until their next court hearing.

The 16 and 17-year-old boys whose names were not being released because of their ages, were arrested last month. They face charges of conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit assault with a deadly weapon, prosecutors said.

They are expected to be back in court on Oct. 30 when a judge will decide if they'll remain at home or if they'll be taken back into custody during their trial.

The teens began making detailed arrangements to kill three staff members at South Pasadena High School and gun down as many students as possible, authorities said.

The pair told another student about the mass shooting plan and they threatened to kill him, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

They were initially charged with one count each of making criminal threats.
