Four students at Lampasas High School who allegedly discussed a potential school shooting Thursday were arrested Friday, police say.

Lampasas police arrested 18-year-old Devin Dakota Magana shortly before 2 p.m. at his home. Dennis Martinez, 18, was also arrested around 2 p.m. at his home. They were transported and booked to Lampasas County Jail.

Two juveniles were also delivered by their parents Friday to Lampasas Police Department, who were referred to juvenile probation, according to a press release.

School staff and Lampasas police investigated and determined the four students were seated together at lunch Thursday near students who overheard their discussion, according to the release. Lampasas police say they discussed "a recent tragic school shooting" and a potential school shooting at Lampasas High School.

Their discussion included how the shooting would be executed, according to the release. Other students heard the discussion, and school staff contacted their parents. The students were then released from school.

The Lampasas County Attorney’s Office was briefed and recommended the four students be charged with false alarm or report, a Class A misdemeanor.
