High School Honor Student Planned To Be First Female Mass Shooter

The Maryland high school student sentenced on Tuesday had planned to be the first female mass shooter.

​Frederick, MD – A former honor student, accused of chronicling a detailed plot to violently attack her high school, was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday.

The sentence was handed down on the same day that Nicole Cevario, 19, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing explosive material with the intent to create a destructive device, WRC reported.

The court also imposed a five-year supervised prison sentence to follow the teen’s term of incarceration, WTOP reported.

Investigators became aware of Cevario’s plan to carry out a mass shooting at Catoctin High School after her father read the girl’s diary in March of 2017.

The teen wrote that she believed she would be the first female mass shooter.

Concerned about the journal's contents, her father alerted school officials, and Cevario was promptly removed from her classroom and taken for an involuntary psychological evaluation.

As police began dissecting the meticulous plans Cevario recorded in her diary, they realized the full scope of the teen’s intent.

"We felt this was going to be carried out,” Frederick County Sheriff Charles Jenkins said, according to WRC. “There is no doubt in our minds that we diverted a disaster up there.”

Cevario wrote about a shotgun, ammunition, bomb-making materials, and details of the high school’s emergency response plan, WJLA reported.

According to WTOP, she took special interest in the school’s resource deputy, and asked questions about how police would arm themselves in the event of an emergency.

She had even selected the date of Apr. 5, 2017 to follow through with her plot, police said.

Her writings analyzed mass school shootings in Columbine, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut, and took special note of the mistakes those shooters made during their attacks, Sheriff Jenkins said, according to WRC.

"The journal was very detailed, including a timeline that revealed how she was going to execute the plot, and her expectations at each stage of the event," police said.

At Cevario’s home, police found a stockpile of bomb-making materials that included pipes, caps, shrapnel, fireworks, magnesium tape, and fuse material.

A shotgun and ammunition were also recovered, and the teen had written about her plans to saw off the gun’s barrel.

If the attack went off as planned, Cevario planned to kill herself with the shotgun, she wrote.

She later admitted to police that she intended to detonate homemade pipe bombs at the school, and confirmed that she planned to die in the attack.

“Clearly, Ms. Cevario posed a threat not only to the school, but to herself,” FCSO said in a statement shortly after the journal’s contents were discovered.

Investigators said they found no evidence that anyone else was involved in the teen’s plot.

Prior to the discovery of Cevario’s journal, the high school student was simultaneously taking college classes in the field of criminal justice.

She was arrested on Mar. 31, 2017, after her psychological evaluation was completed, WTOP reported.

At sentencing, the court prohibited Cevario from going near any educational institutions once she was released from prison.

Another potential mass killing thug terrorist off the streets. Her dad did the right thing. Sounds like this monster was aiming for notoriety like the rest of her white identity extremists.

There was no evidence this was racially motivated. Your ignorance and demagoguery are just as bad as what any white supremacist pushes. You are a racist.

@cclaxton I'm not a racist. But, since you feel the need to respond to a comment your feelings tell you is racist, feel free to comment on all racist posts, hypocrite.

You're obsessed with whiteness and starving for the attention mommy and daddy never gave you.

Why now do you turn to color? In all the time I’ve known you as a person that always and never brought Color into your comments and at times you would correct me and I admired your strengths To keep it to the point of the human race🤔 you did a back flip. I was just wondering why now, you always kept it neutral on race. I’ve changed my opinions and what I used to say about situations like this because of your intelligence, I want to thank you for keeping my mind neutral and wanted you to know if not for you I wouldn’t be the way I am on here when I comment.

There was absolutely no evidence, and you brought race into it....suggesting white identity is responsible...that is racist. But then again it is well expected from someone who chooses to be ignorant.

Not sure why race would make a difference to you...a terrorist is a terrorist and deserves prison.

@JohnPollastro I'll address you, as we have rapport with each other

The white identity extremist line was over the top, but why exactly would that jump out at you among any other racist thing said on this site? Does it get under your skin because it's a racist comment that reflects you?

Im not sorry I said it, but if it made you feel a way, my apologies there. I just wonder why so many people can call out the bigoted crack I made, but say nothing when it's said about other races?

@FrogHill though the second half of your post was difficult to read, you're correct. White women are definitely padding the prison stats.

I dont consider myself white, I'm a second generation Italian. on a application they ask for your race Latino< African American, Caucasian/white< native American, they dont have a other___ I'm proud of my heritage and the last time i checked In Italy we are considered Italian not white, my skin is brown my mind has no racism towards a specific race, there's racist people in every race so you can'[t sum me up as a white Extremist, you yourself taught me this. I told you long before i listen to what you say and respect your opinion and have toned it down do to me looking back at how i used to comment. I know you don't like me but your creating something in me that you and i should be proud of. i need someone to have my 6 and I'm proving that I deserve it don't you think ?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@JohnPollastro nice, you should be proud of where your blood comes from. My words were out of line on purpose, but you're right my friend - we've definitely learned from each other.

And what's this about me not liking you? We started at odds, but as far as liking someone through chat goes, I'd say we've both come a long way.

Thanks for giving me a pause. I'll limit my purposely inflammatory comments to responses only, and not use them to start dialogue.

I have to think turning her in was a very hard thing for her father to do. Unlike most of the mass shooters in this country, she actually had a brain, and because of that the results could have been far worse. I am thinking sociopath.

@pbm4jc probably italian, but no matter. She's white. Race is different than ethnicity.
