Authorities say a 15-year-old armed with a Samurai sword hijacked a school bus about 7:30 a.m. today as part of a plan to blow up his Las Vegas-area high school.
Nye County Sheriff´s officials say the boy was caught in California after leading police on a high-speed chase and rolling the bus. No one else was on the bus. The boy wasn´t severely injured.
A second 15-year-old boy, who wasn´t on the bus, was arrested on charges including conspiracy.
The school was evacuated this morning after police found plans to blow up the school with gas bombs. Authorities say no explosives were found.
