ALBION, N.Y. (WKBW) — They came looking for answers, both parents and students, wanting to learn more about a potentially deadly student fueled plot that was thwarted at Albion Middle School.

At times, tempers boiled over, with parents demanding assurances when it comes to the safety of their children.

Tuesday's meeting followed the arrests of three middle school boys earlier this month, all of whom are now facing felony conspiracy charges. Police say they were planning to enter the school with explosives and guns to kill and injure students and staff. Investigators say a date had also been set for the attack. Although it was a credible threat police say they do not believe an attack was imminent and the school's campus is safe.
