Two Colorado Springs high school students are facing charges for allegedly making violent threats against classmates.

Authorities say a 16 year old boy at Wasson High School told a girl on Monday that he was going to shoot her, then continue shooting up the rest of the building.

Another 16 year old male student at Wasson made similar threats last Thursday.

In both cases, classmates overheard the threats and notified officials.

The boys are under arrest on suspicion of menacing, and interfering with faculty, staff and students at a school.

It's the policy of Colorado Springs School District 11 to send letters to parents when such threats occur, but no letters were sent in these cases.

A district spokeswoman says it's not clear why.
