What's Next For the Bartlesville Teen Accused of Plotting School Shooting
An 18-year-old Bartlesville student was arraigned on charges that he plotted a mass shooting at his high school.
Sammie Eaglebear Chavez, 18, is charged with attempting or conspiring to perform an act of violence, according to court records. He was arraigned before a Washington County judge Friday morning.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for February 21.
His bond was originally set at $200,000, but was increased five-fold following the deadly shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Chavez was arrested after he tried to recruit fellow Bartlesville High School students to assist in Columbine-style school shooting, according to a court affidavit.
The students said Chavez told them he planned to lure students into auditorium and chain the doors shut and begin shooting, the affidavit states.
Students also reported that Chavez planned to put bombs at the doors of the school to detonate when police arrived, according to the affidavit.
