The planned violent attack on members of a historically black church has been aborted with arrest of a 16-year-old white teenage girl in Gainesville, Georgia.
The planed terror attack of the young girl were revealed by counsellors last week by students who found the plans to commit multiple murder at the church.
The teen targeted Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church with plans to hurt multiple people, Gainsville police said.
The teen was taken into custody after school administration officials confirmed the threat.
“Our investigation indicated the church was targeted by the juvenile based on the racial demographics of the church members. The juvenile was charged with Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder and was transported to the Regional Youth Detention Center in Gainesville,” Police Chief Jay Parrish wrote in a tweet.
Details of her planned attack on the church were not released by the Police, but it was gathered from local news sources that she collected knives and other dangerous weapons.
Meanwhile, Bishop Reginald T. Jackson of the church said:
“While we are very concerned about this incident, we are not surprised,” Bishop Reginald T. Jackson said.
