Georgia students may have prevented a possible attack on a Black church after turning in a peer’s notebook to school administrators.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports an unidentified 16-year-old white girl plotted an attack on the majority Black Bethel AME Church in Hall County, Georgia. The details of the attack were kept in a notebook that was brought to the attention of school officials who then went to the police. The girl also began building a knife collection, but it’s not yet been established how she intended to execute the killings.
On Tuesday, Gainesville Police posted a press release stating the girl was in custody.
