DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) — Three teenage boys are accused of threatening to shoot and bomb their high school in a rural community in central Utah, but authorities say the youths only had small knives and didn’t move to carry out the plan.

The 14-and 15-year -old boys were taken into custody Thursday at Duchesne High School after other students reported that the three were planning an attack.

The boys had small knives and diagrams of how to build an explosive device and to make an improvised gun but no guns or were found explosives at the school.

The Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office says the boys told detectives they’d been bulled in the past but no specifics were released.

The boys’ names weren’t released.
