Teen called too drunk to attack
The 16-year-old Maryland boy who police allege planned a school shooting was too intoxicated to carry off the attack, according to charging documents released on Wednesday.
Sash Nemphos told police he had been bullied for years and on Halloween decided to kill his parents, drive to the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson, shoot the school police officer, and then take the officer’s gun to “kill as many teachers and students as he could,” according to the court documents.
Nemphos, a 10th-grader, took the gun to school in a backpack Friday but decided to hold off until Monday because he had been drinking whiskey before class and was too inebriated to carry out his plans, according to police.
Nemphos was arrested at his home on Saturday during a theft investigation. Police found a suicide note, a journal detailing his plans, homemade bombs and a handgun in the boy’s home.
