Written by

A school shooting plan in West Geauga High School was foiled after a student discovered a bullet in a men’s restroom. 3News reports that the discovery of the 9 mm bullet led school officials to review surveillance video, and interview nearly 20 students. 

Further investigation led school officials to the suspected student, 18-year-old Brandon Morrisette. It’s reported that Vice Principal Victor Puskas searched Morresette’s backpack and allegedly found a Smith and Wesson 9 mm handgun and three fully loaded magazines of ammunition. Officials say he also had a lock blade-style knife on his person.

Court documents obtained by 3News reveal that Morrisette allegedly had plans to shoot multiple students at West Geauga High School. Chester Township Police Chief Craig Young says that Morrisette “admitted to using prior calculation and design in developing a plan to cause harm to students at West Geauga High School on April 3.”

Morrisette now faces multiple charges including attempted aggravated murder, inducing panic, and illegal possession of a weapon in a school safety zone. However officials note that those charges are subject to change.
