A Montgomery County high school student is charged with what police describe as plans to commit a school shooting.


Andrea Ye, 18, of Rockville, whose preferred name is Alex Ye, is charged with threats of mass violence. Montgomery County Police and the FBI arrested Ye Wednesday.


In a statement, police said the FBI notified the department about a 129-page “manifesto” written by Ye outlining strategies for carrying out a school shooting in Montgomery County. Ye also contemplates targeting an elementary school and says he wants to be famous, police said. . . .

As with other mass public shooters, Ye “wanted to become ‘famous’ by massacring” others. Ye reportedly engaged in online searches of other mass murders by trans individuals, such as the attack at the Covenant School in Nashville. Ye was also undergoing psychiatric care, but it was a fellow patient, not the mental health care experts, who alerted authorities to the threat that Ye posed.


Ye reportedly spent the last 15 months under psychiatric care. Court records show that the student purchased a BB gun online without their parents’ knowledge. Records suggested she was considering committing “suicide by cop,” which describes an individual who points a weapon at police to be killed. In addition, the investigators spoke with a psychologist who treated Ye, with another counselor informing them, “Ye would express violent thoughts such as shooting up the school, wanting to hurt other people, and would smile while saying it.”
