A teenage boy admitted Monday to shooting an elderly couple to death in Wisconsin before adding that he also planned to attack his high school, police said.

Alexander M. Kraus, 17, said he shot a couple at their home in eastern Wisconsin, The Associated Press reported Monday. Police found the bodies of the deceased couple late Sunday morning after responding to a 911 call for help, Grand Chute police officer Travis Waas told TheAP. Waas would not provide comment on details of the call.

Authorities arrested Kraus at the house where the crime occurred, according to TheAP. Police haven’t released the names of the deceased, but did confirm Kraus knew them.
