An Ardmore High School student has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder after expressing desire to kill another student.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said investigators learned Dec. 1 that the student, a juvenile, was trying to get a firearm to murder another student.

“During the investigation, several interviews were conducted, and it was determined that while the student had not obtained a firearm, the student had intent to commit murder,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

“If you hear or see something, please always say something,” Sheriff Joshua McLaughlin said in a statement.

“Doing just that in this instance, may have saved lives. I would like to thank the great teamwork of our Investigators, the School Administration, and LCSO School Resource Officer, Brandon Baker.”

The name of the juvenile suspect has not been released.
