    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Authorities arrested two high school students in suburban Atlanta on Thursday after they were warned that one of the students planned to "do harm" at the school with a weapon, police said.

    Sgt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Woodstock Middle School, Woodstock High School and Etowah High School were put on lockdown -- meaning no one could enter or leave the buildings -- after authorities learned of the threat.

    Police arrested Forrest Busby, 17, at Woodstock High School and found a revolver he is said to have brought to school and hid in the bathroom ceiling, authorities said.

    A subsequent search of Busby's home turned up an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and a Mini-14 assault rifle, as well as 200 rounds of ammunition, Baker said in a statement. Six marijuana plants were discovered in the student's closet.

    A 15-year-old student was also arrested in connection with the incident, the statement said.

    Baker said another student is being interviewed by authorities but has not been charged in the case.

    Busby has been charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds, carrying a concealed weapon and manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance, among other counts.

    He's being held without bail at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center, the sheriff's statement said.

    The 15-year-old has been charged as an accomplice on various weapons violations and is being held at the Paulding Youth Detention Center.
    The lockdown orders for the schools were lifted after the weapons were recovered, Baker said.

    Woodstock is about 30 miles north of downtown Atlanta.



    My wife works at the feeder school for Woodstock middle which feeds Woodstock High School and she said the "rumor" going around their today before she left was the dad turned the kid in after he ran away and stole the gun. Also, the other weapons and ammo mentioned are apparently the father's and weren't the kids, they just found them while searching the home.:ugh:

    That's got to be a tuff thing for a dad to do, but I am very glad he did it.

    With an AR and 200 rounds of ammo, I still doubt they'd kill more than a dozen people.
    Thank god all these fuckups who shoot up their school are such terrible shots.

    Which one of you didn't think of how many kids you could take out with an AR and 200 rounds.

    Sadly enough, the FIRST thought that came to mind when I read about the NIU shootings was "What poor fucking marksmanship." :o

    Auditorium style classroom with 162 out of the 200 seats filled, he's armed with a 12ga, Glock 9mm, and another small-caliber pistol and he ends up fatally shooting 6. :ugh2: Srsly.

    I'm definitely going to hell, but seriously, if I was gonna shoot a place up, I have no doubt I'd get at least 100 people.
