Oklahoma teen will stand trial in alleged mass school shooting plot
BARTLESVILLE– An 18-year-old Bartlesville High School senior was bound over for trial Thursday on a charge of plotting a mass school shooting after a preliminary hearing that included testimony on notes he had written saying he was becoming “comfortable” with the idea of killing.
