A former high school janitor apparently had been planning to execute a mass shooting at the institution he’d previously worked at, and police had no idea until the 24-year-old turned himself in last month.
Khristopher Clay is in an Oregon jail right now with a $2 million bail after his court hearing yesterday. He was arrested Wednesday after staying in a hospital’s mental health unit for some time.
“The high school was at least one of the targets,” said Medford Police Department’s Mike Budreau. “There were others.”
He continued: “Why he turned himself in is the million dollar question. I believe that he did a lot of planning and a lot of sinister thoughts, but he had that moment where he wanted to help. Thank goodness that happened. Had he not turned himself in, I don’t think we would have figured this one out before it happened.”
