Boy, 14, is accused of making a terrifying ‘kill list’ naming the dozens of classmates he vowed to murder – as cops ‘find a homemade BOMB’ at his family home
- A NSW 14-year-old allegedly made a ‘kill list’ of more than 20 of his classmates
- He was charged with possessing dangerous substance with intent to injure
- Police also allege he’d been practicing using homemade explosive at his house
A year nine student allegedly named dozens of his classmates in a horrifying ‘kill list’, which police fear could have turned into a US-style school massacre.
The 14-year-old from NSW, who can’t be named due to his age, has been charged after police allegedly found a homemade explosive device at his family home.
More than 20 of his peers have now taken out personal violence orders against him after police believe he penned the chilling note about them more than a month ago.
He is accused of writing vicious notes about his classmates, also just 14 and 15 years old.
The teenager on Thursday was charged with possessing dangerous substances with intent to injure and will face court next month.

He was taken to a psychologist after his mother allegedly found out about the list of names and notes about his classmates, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The counsellor described the boy as expressing extreme ‘hate’ for the other students and there were concerns for their welfare.
It was then reported to police, and the school has since hired security guards that carry out protocols similar to emergency lockdowns.
Police searched the 14-year-old’s home after he was taken into custody for a mental health assessment.
One resident said the case had terrified the school community.
‘It could well have been a US-style high school situation,’ they said
‘It is as serious as it gets … it is quite scary.’
The teenager also allegedly practiced detonating explosives at his home.
He has since been released from custody and is under strict bail conditions at his home with his parents.
The 14-year-old will appear in the Children’s Court in September.
