Ron Mitchell said. "Due to the interviews, we were of the mind that they were, at some point, they were going to randomly shoot people at school.[4]" The 16-year-old is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, grand theft of a firearm, being a minor in possession of a handgun, and having a firearm on campus. The other boy, 15, faces the same charges except instead of grand theft, he is charged with receiving stolen property, said Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons.[6] Covina High School Principal Claudia Karnoski said she conducted her own investigation. The boys had shown the loaded guns to three or four friends, who failed to alert teachers, apparently because they didn't want to get into trouble.[7][8] One of the suspects had commented to the group that they should shoot people during a campus assembly that happened just before spring break, which started April 6. The principal said the plot was not carefully planned, though she is taking the incident seriously. People will automatically think it was a Columbine-type plan. I am not downplaying it, but I don't think it was to that elevation. Claudia Karnoski[9] Karnoski said each boy was "like one of the everyday kids" at Covina High, a school of 1,500, and they had not been in trouble before. She said there was no indication of any grudge against staff members or students.[10] The boys, whose identities were not released because they are juveniles, were arrested Thursday one at home and the other at school. Mitchell did not know if the boys had been assigned attorneys and they remained in juvenile custody.[11][12] Besides a Glock .40-caliber handgun and a Smith & Wesson .357-caliber handgun, police found several rounds of rifle ammunition with the boys but no rifle. Investigators also seized a drawing one of the boys allegedly made depicting a hooded figure shooting another character in the head. Underneath the drawing, the word "Exterminate" was written.[8][13][14] Karnoski said the boy who drew that was a keen artist and had notebooks filled with all kinds of sketches. "It is disturbing, I don't know what it referred to."[8][14] The incident marked the first time the Covina-Valley Unified School District had experienced guns on campus, officials said.[8][14] Responses to the incidents The Press arrived at the school on April 30, 2009 at 9:00PM and 10:00PM. Most of the news was spread on May 1, 2009 one day after the arrests were made. Denise Billiter mother of a Covina High School student quoted "I'm in complete shock right now. With everything going on, I'm really shocked they didn't notify me yesterday."[15] Principal Claudia Karnoski during a press meeting on May 1, 2009. Students at the school were surprised of the incident[disambiguation needed]. On an interview with ABC News freshman student Kevin Park said the majority of students had no idea what had happened "I think they probably just got them and took them away 'cause there was no sirens, no cop cars, we didn't see anything." [16] Brittney Baca a sophomore at the school commented that it makes her feel bad for the people more that they have such hatred for life, and such hatred for people that they don't really care what happens.[17] On a Fox News interview an anonymous mother said to be ashamed and in complete shock, because the school has a great staff, teachers and specially students.[18] A student from the school said "I didn't believe it until the morning when I saw parents were picking up their kids and we were notified of the urgent assembly."[19] ASB club The ASB club offers many opportunities for students of any grade level. ASB hosts the annual class award competition named Color Rally, which is a competition that shows which class has the best school spirt throughout the year.
