High school students arrested in connection to GoFundMe for ammo

The GoFundMe page, which has since been taken down, said ammunition was expensive and they needed help to shoot up Combs High School.

SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. - Two Combs High School students have been arrested after reports of a threat toward the school.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said a 15-year-old reportedly threatened to file off the serial number of a gun and bring it to school.

According to the sheriff's office, a second student helped the 15-year-old set up a GoFundMe account to raise money for ammunition. The page, which has since been taken down, said ammunition was expensive and they needed help to shoot up Combs High School.

GoFundMe released the following statement after the account was removed:

"The campaign raised no funds and has been removed from the platform. Additionally, the campaign organizer has been banned from using the GoFundMe platform. It is against GoFundMe's terms of service to raise funds on our platform to buy ammunition or firearms."

Deputies said the first student did not have any weapons; however, the second student had immediate access to weapons at his home.

The second student told authorities during an interview that he did now know who created the GoFundMe account, but he was there when it was created.

Both students have been arrested and face charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism and interference or disruption of an education institution.
