RIVERTON, Kan. - Five teenage boys fully intended to go on a shooting spree
at their high school but were stopped after one of them discussed the plot
on a Web site, law enforcement and school officials said.

The boys, ranging in age from 16 to 18, were arrested Thursday, the
anniversary of the Columbine massacre, just hours before they planned to
shoot fellow students and school employees, authorities said.
