Officials in the U.S. say detectives have arrested a 16-year-old female student and foiled an Arizona school shooting plot with the help of Toronto police.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says the girl’s threat was posted on a YouTube channel owned by a transgender community in Toronto.

The owner of the channel contacted Toronto police who then tracked down the teen who had plans to gun down her schoolmates at Red Mountain High and kill herself.
Police say they found three handguns at the teen’s home, but the weapons were released to the girl’s father for safe keeping.

They said the girl’s parents both told detectives that their daughter had a history of mental health issues, had been seen by a psychiatrist, and had recently been asking about where the guns were kept in the house.

The teen is being detained at a juvenile facility and is facing charges of one count of computer tampering and one count of threatening and intimidating.

Thank God the owner of the channel contacted police!! This is one example of how everyone can help stop such tragedies!
