Police: Rush City High School student created 'hit list'

RUSH CITY, Minn. -

Authorities in east-central Minnesota have arrested a 13-yeat-old boy they say created a hit list titled "bullies" and a list of people he wished to spare.

Chisago County sheriff's officials were alerted Thursday after the alleged hit list was recovered from the teen, who was already on probation for previous threats.

Deputies interviewed the boy, who confirmed he had put the list together. Authorities interviewed other students who had seen the lists, and the principal reached out to students on both lists as well.

"I know the kids. I know the kid who did it," Taylor Youngblom, a senior at Rush City High School. "It's kind of scary, but I know nothing is going to happen."

Letters were also sent home to Rush City families about the threat, but school officials insist there was never any immediate threat to the 400-student campus.

The boy remains in a juvenile detention center in Lino Lakes.
