A 17-year-old boy in Coral Springs, Fla., was arrested at his high school on Monday for possession of a weapon, ABC 10 reports.

The teen was allegedly walking around school showing students the 9mm gun in the waist of his pants. One of those students told Officer Jeff Heinrich about the weapon, who immediately detained the boy. The school was then placed on lockdown to find the boy’s “associate,” who was found to have a seven-page terror manifesto.

Coral Springs Police Dept. tweeted Monday day around 2 p.m. “Coral Springs High School is currently on lockdown. Everyone is safe, one person detained reference possession of weapon.”

The creepy manifesto was posted by the police department and can be read here. The document is a journal where the boy talks about his rage and his plot for “Terror Day,” a “mass school shooting which will take place on January 13, 2017.”

He draws pictures of guns, with the quote “Guns Rule!” and hearts around the term “asian girls.”

The boy explains his frustration with not having love, and his crush on an Asian girl with a boyfriend.

“Some stuff I don’t get about life is how hard it f—— is to get an Asian girl,” he writes. “I know I might sound weird but I want to find love with an Asian girl. Love might cure me from my evil thoughts and my rage. I just want love and I can’t f—– get it. I like this one Asian girl in school but she has a f—– boyfriend. This is why my life sucks so f—– much.”

The boy details the weapons he’d like to use for the attack, but says, “the problem is how do I get money when I turn 16 (?) I might get a job a Papa Johns.”

He also says, “I want to be the worst school shooter in America if I do the attack. I am still not 100 percent sure I want to do this, but I want to be the worst school shooter in America. Worst (sic) than Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Sandy Hook.”

The teen with the manifesto was not charged with anything. He was, however, taken involuntarily for a mental evaluation. The boy with the gun was charged with possession of a firearm of a minor and possession of a firearm on school property.
