DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) -- Two Duchesne High School students have been suspended for allegedly drawing up two "hit lists."
The two 17-year-old seniors have no history of trouble at school and no past criminal records. Principal Stan Young says they are both good kids who made a really bad decision.
Young says the two boys were in a computer lab when they allegedly typed up two "death lists" with names of students and some faculty members.
There were 18 names on one and 25 on the other.
The two boys reportedly showed the list of names on the computers to classmates. When the teacher became aware of what was going on he contacted Young, who then called the sheriff's department.
The sheriff's office called the parents of the students whose names were on the list.
Duchesne County School District Superintendent John Aland says it's up to the school board how long the two boys will be suspended.
