Mother charged after 14-year-old son allegedly stockpiled weapons for school shooting

The mother of a 14-year-old who police say planned to shoot multiple classmates at his Pennsylvania high school was charged on Monday in connection to the foiled plot, authorities said.

Lenora Ann Hendrix, of Markleysburg, Pennsylvania, was charged with knowingly and intentionally delivering or providing a firearm to a minor, according to ABC affiliate WTAE, after her son threatened to carry out a mass shooting at Uniontown High School last month.

The teen, who wasn’t indentified, was taken into police custody on Jan. 25, just days after mass shootings at high schools in Kentucky and Texas. A witness reported that she overheard the suspect saying he would kill four classmates he disliked, officials said.
