LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in Florida say they were able to prevent a planned mass shooting at a middle school by arresting two teens before they could carry out their plan.

Police say rumors about the shooting at Charter Middle School in Sumter County started on Tuesday. That's when the two students, ages 13 and 14, were taken in for questioning. 

Investigators say the teens referenced the Columbine High School shooting when they were asked about the plan.

Police searched their homes and found guns. 

Both teens are charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
