SCHOOL SHOOTING THREAT - A Ravenswood High School teen has been detained in a juvenile detention center after police say he was threatening and plotting a school shooting.

The plot was divulged by a fellow student who notified authorities.

"The kid that came forward is, in my opinion, a hero," said Officer Tom Speece. Other students also said they had heard about the threats.

Police went to the teen's home where they collected more evidence, interviewed the teen and then arrested him.

Authorities told media that a 14-year-old boy was making several threats and told students he had a hit list and planned on walking through the front door of the school with a shotgun.

Ravenswood High was open as usual yesterday, since panic, worry and gossip spread over Facebook and Twitter Monday night, with many students not showing up to school.
