ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) — Two high school students have been charged with conspiracy to commit capital murder after authorities uncovered what they described as potentially deadly school attack plot.

The boys, whose names were not released, were arrested Thursday, Williamson County Sheriff's Department detective John Foster said.

Foster would not discuss specifics of the McNeil High School students' alleged plan after announcing the arrests Monday. He would not say how police and school officials learned of the plot but added that "we were very fortunate to discover this before it did happen."
