PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) -- Police arrested a 14-year-old boy who reportedly talked to other students about "doing a Columbine" at Aylen Junior High in Puyallup (pew-AL'-up)

KOMO reports (http://bit.ly/s54aYK) another student notified authorities. The 14-year-old was arrested Thursday and booked into juvenile detention in Tacoma for investigation of conspiracy to carry out an act of violence.

Capt. Scott Engle says detectives contacted other students who were involved in discussions with the boy to ensure that that there are no credible threats to school safety.
