(WESH) Students at Florida's The Villages Charter Middle School are being heralded as heroes for speaking up and potentially stopping a school shooting.
School officials said they heard rumors Tuesday about a 13-year-old student planning a mass shooting and carrying it out Friday.
The middle schooler was taken into custody and admitted to authorities that he and a 14-year-old student were plotting the shooting.
When speaking with officers, the two referenced the Columbine High School massacre in 1999 that killed 14 people.
Authorities arrested the 13-year-old at his home in Fruitland Park and the 14-year-old at his home in Wildwood. Officers also located weapons at the both students' homes.
