Students allegedly were planning to attend Long Island, N.Y., high school next year.

Two Long Island, N.Y., teenagers have been arrested on charges of plotting a terrorist attack on Connetquot High School in Bohemia,— with a “hit list” of specific students — around the ninth anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.

The journal contained “numerous terrorist threats and plans to attack” the school with guns and homemade explosives on or about April 20, 2008.
