According to witness statements, at least one of the three had been trying to get a gun but failed, deputies said. Investigators found no evidence that the three had access to weapons or the means to carry out an attack.
Authorities first learned of the plot last week, after receiving reports of disturbing threats being made in instant messages a boy wrote to another teen who had contacted him through his MySpace page, deputies said.
The boy posed as a 19-year-old on his page, which features satanic references, a picture of a tombstone and other disturbing images and admiration for the two shooters responsible for the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School, deputies said.
In the instant messages, the boy directed his rage at two students in particular, but also made general threats to lock the cafeteria doors during one of the lunch periods and shoot everyone in sight, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
"Everyone will pay for what they did to me," wrote the boy, who claimed he was being teased and picked on at school. "They will all die along with me."
The boy also sent instant messages to another teen stating, "I will kill every person I see.
.The massacre will happen soon."

At least they caught him before he could kill anyone. I had a rough time in school but I never thought of shooting the place up.
If the charges are true and their intent was as stated, take all three out behind the jail and shoot them now. There is no reason to let evil fester and grow.
The pictures are up because they are whites.
The pictures are up because they are whites. In many states its illegal to post pictures of juvenile defendants.
Your suffering is the price that must be paid for "socialization," or peer-induced idiocy. My school years were, without question, the worst years of my life. And I went to school in a wealthy suburb with the proverbial "great school system." I can't even imagine what city kids go through.
