An 11-year-old boy was convicted Friday of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in a fifth-grade plot that targeted a female classmate. He and a 10-year-old friend brought a gun and knife to school to commit the murder. The boy said he was planning to stab the girl to death because she was “really annoying” and the second boy was to point the gun at anyone who tried to intervene.
Authorities discovered the plan when a fourth-grader saw one of the boys playing with a knife aboard a school bus and told a school employee what he’d seen. A search of the 10-year-old’s backpack found a knife, a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol and a full ammunition magazine.
