MySpace Foils School Shooting?

MySpace seems to be making the news a lot in the past few months. We've linked to a few stories before, where people have been arrested for content they've posted on the popular service. This is a little more serious though, as it appears a few kids(ages 16-18) planned a shooting spree at a Kansas school. They posted information about the shooting on MySpace accounts, and the threat became even more serious when a woman received a list of the victims names. Going beyond the angry ramblings many teens leave on MySpace, Sheriff's deputies found weapons in the home of one of the suspects.

"Five teenage boys accused of plotting a shooting rampage at their high school on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre were arrested Thursday after a message authorities said warned of a gun attack appeared on the Web site MySpace.com."

The attack was planned for today, April 20th, which is anniversary of the Columbine shooting.
