    Details:

    On December 15, 2011 at approximately 2:06 p.m. several deputies conducted a traffic stop on a white 2003 Hyundai. The deputies had received information that the individuals inside the vehicle were going to conduct a shooting at King High School. The individuals were detained and two weapons were located in the rear of the vehicle. A .22 caliber handgun was located on the rear seat and a Rossi .38 handgun was located under the seat of the front passengers seat. The three suspects were taken into custody. Fuches and O'Quendo were booked into the Orient Road Jail. The 15 year old was booked at the Juvenile Assessment Center.

    The investigation is ongoing and the three suspects have not been cooperative with law enforcement. It is believed that the shooting was not to take place at the school, but that one individual that attends King High School was the intended target and the shooting was to take place off campus.

    The investigation continues.
