Two Long Island teens were busted for planning a Columbine-like plot to bomb a school and gun down students and faculty, Suffolk County police said Friday.[…]
The teen duo spent several weeks searching bomb-making Web sites to prepare for the attack – and were only waiting for Franko to turn 18 to legally buy the firepower needed to carry out their deadly assault, police said.
The couple already had tried to buy a shotgun but were turned down because they were minors, cops said.
“They were going to go back on June 8 [Franko’;s birthday] and buy one, and return on June 9 for another one – and carry out the attack on June 10,” said Suffolk County Police Deputy Inspector Michael Shanahan.
