PUXICO — Authorities have turned up a list of names and several firearms from the home of a southeast Missouri teenager who they say threatened to kill 29 classmates.

The female suspect was arrested Feb. 11. Authorities said she planned to get on a school rooftop and shoot classmates on her birthday in March. She allegedly posted a photo of herself holding high-powered rifle on a Facebook page, and had planned to solicit help from other students for her attack.

The Dexter Daily Statesman reported that Stoddard County authorities retrieved a laptop, sketch pads, lists of people the juvenile allegedly planned to kill and several firearms. One of the weapons matched the description of the rifle that appeared in the Facebook photo.
