A British teen accused of plotting a Columbine-style attack on his college had made a list of students he disliked, classmates testified.
The 17-year-old, who has not been identified publicly, had several classroom outbursts during which he threatened to shoot and stab fellow students at the sixth form college, which is akin to a junior college. On at least one occasion he brought a gun to school, a classmate testified Monday.
The Mirror said the suspect had a notebook with the names of students he wanted to harm, with another student saying many of those he sought to target were minorities.
"Anyone that ain't Christian or white he wanted to get rid of," the witness added.
The suspect was also seen in school with knives and spoke openly about his distaste for the school.
"He had said before 'I hate this college, I don't like it, I don't want to be here,'" the boy added.
The student is one of three arrested and charged with plotting an attack on the school, in Loughborough, England.
Police have charged the teen with possessing items for the purpose, preparation and instigation of an act of terrorism. At the time of his arrest, police found nine partially assembled gas bombs, commercial fireworks powder, partially assembled pipe bombs, partially constructed improvised explosive devices, quantities of commercial pyrotechnic fuse cords, a stab-proof vest and a gas mask.
