LA GRANDE, Ore. (KOIN) — Two juveniles were arrested Tuesday night on charges of conspiracy to commit murder in connection with plans they had to execute a Columbine-type attack on La Grande High School.

La Grande police began an investigation after receiving a tip about the planned attack on Monday evening. The threat was later determined to be credible, police said.

Interviews with those familiar with the situation revealed the 2 suspects reportedly intended to target staff, students and law enforcement in the attack.

Both suspects were taken into custody late Tuesday night.

Classes resumed Wednesday without incident, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.
