Authorities say a 15-year-old boy stole his father's guns as part of a suicidal plan to attack enemies at a suburban Philadelphia high school.

Montgomery County prosecutor Risa Vetri Ferman says the boy was charged Tuesday with attempted murder and is being held in a mental health center.

Ferman says the freshman gave the three guns to a friend to take to Pottstown High School. The friend instead threw the weapons in a river.

The father reported the guns missing, and police investigated.

Ferman describes the suspect as a loner with a history of depression. She says he does not have a lawyer.
