WASECA, Minn. (AP) -- Students are back in a southeastern Minnesota school after authorities last week foiled a teenager's suspected plot to attack the school.

Counselors were on hand Monday as students returned to the Waseca junior and senior high school building that was the target of the alleged plot.

Superintendent Tom Lee says the school is "just trying to get back to normal as quickly as we can."

Court documents say a 17-year-old boy planned to kill his family, set a fire to divert first responders, then go to his school with bombs and guns and "kill as many students as he could."

The planned attack was halted with a concerned citizen became suspicious and called police.

The teen is charged in juvenile court. Prosecutors want to charge him as an adult.
