FARMINGTON — Farmington police say two 15-year-old students are accused of plotting to conduct a shooting attack at Farmington High School and that a third student is under investigation.

Police said Thursday in a statement a 15-year-old boy had a map of the school and a plan that included a list of items needed for a shooting on a specific date, and a 15-year-old girl “contributed to the plan."

Those two students were charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated battery and another 15-year-old boy was under investigation, the statement said.

Police said they learned of the plan Jan. 24 when notified by a school administrator following a report by another student.

“We’re grateful to the student who reported this early so that school staff and our officers could intervene," Police Chief Steve Hebbe said. “This is a perfect example of how we work as a community to keep our kids safe in Farmington.”

The investigation included determining the accused students didn't have access to guns, according to police.
