Two Colorado teens arrested in alleged plot to shoot up high school

Just a week after a disaffected teen severely wounded a fellow student at his Colorado high school before killing himself, police arrested two other boys Friday on suspicion of plotting to similarly shoot up their high school in the same state.
Trinidad High School, Trinidad Middle School and Fisher's Peak School in Trinidad were on "lockout" status — sealing children and staff inside — for most of Thursday until it was determined that the boys weren't in class.

The boys — who weren't identified because they are juveniles ages 15 and 16 — face charges of making a credible threat to a school and felony inciting destruction of life or property, Trinidad police said Friday.
They'd been planning for at least six weeks to open fire in the high school once classes resume next month after the winter break, police said       .
