Mother Speaks Out After Preventing Mass Shooting At School By Turning In Her Own Son
The brave mother who prevented a possible mass shooting at a school after turning in her 17-year-old son is speaking out on why she took action.
“I know a lot of people that go to College Place High School. Their lives would have been forever changed. It’s devastating. I know I did all I can do and that I made the right choice,” the mother, who only wanted to be identified as Nicole, told CBS News.
As we reported, Nicole called the police in September after discovering her son’s journal. He wrote about attacking his school on a specific date: April 20, 2020, which is the anniversary of the Columbine massacre.
The journal noted that he would detonate pipe bombs, and use multiple firearms to “blast anyone in sight” and “execute survivors.”
Her son also wrote that he would “kill himself after maximum damage.”
At first, Nicole said she fought with the decision to call the police and that her son told her it was only a creative writing exercise and it was “just a story.”
However, police believe otherwise and commend Nicole for taking action and potentially saving many lives.
