A 14-year-old Heber City boy remained in custody Friday, two days after school officials called police upon discovering him with an alleged hit list of six fellow students.
Heber City Police Chief Dave Booth said his officers were called to Rocky Mountain Middle School on Wednesday afternoon. The boy was being held in a Utah County juvenile detention facility pending a court hearing to determine whether he will be released to his parents or kept incarcerated.
"This was great work on the school's part, being aware of the environment and that something was wrong," Booth said. "We treated this very seriously and as aggressively as we could from a law enforcement standpoint."
