In 2011, 16-year-old Nathaniel Zeno was arrested after leaking details of his plan to a classmate Seminole High School, Florida.
He had wanted to kill people at the school who were involved in the mistreatment of animals after witnessing a dissection.
Zeno had been studying a book on the 1999 Columbine massacre in Colorado when 12 students and a teacher were killed by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold
And he had allegedly been compiling a list of firearms to use in his deadly assault.
The teen had obtained maps of the school and had been spotted sketching out the layout by one of the staff, said principal Walter Weller.
A girl student he tried to recruit told deputies that Zeno was targeting people with a history of being cruel or neglectful to animals.
She said he had asked her to ‘assist him in the elimination of people at Seminole High School involved in the cruelty to or killing of animals.’
Zeno had also written on a website called  deviantart.com.under the name ‘blackfoxfurry7.’
The last entry at 1.51 pm March 4, the day he was arrested and taken to a mental hospital, noted his mood as ‘worried.’
It said: ‘To anyone who cares or anyone who is reading this, but especially my friends; I might be going to jail.
'I planned to shoot up my school and was caught while marking a map. I might be going to jail and I'm terrified. This isn't a joke.
'If I don't send another journal within a week, I'm in jail. Goodbye and good luck, especially you, Smookie, Brighty, and Silvermist.'
School chiefs said a ‘catastrophic’ situation had been averted by Zeno’s arrest.
Zeno, who friends described as a ‘very quiet kid’, was initially admitted to a mental hospital for observation.
After his release he was arrested on charges of solicitation to commit murder.

When serial killer Andrei Chikatilo, pictured above, was arrested he was assessed by a psychiatrist who was operating under the guise of scientifically understanding the mind of a killer. Chikatilo found this flattering, and opened up to the psychiatrist, eventually confessing to 56 murders - 53 of which were verified, and this number was well above the 36 cases that police had originally attributed to him.
