A 14-year-old boy in Phelan was arrested Thursday for allegedly planning to kill a former classmate.

The boy was angry about a bicycle that he said the classmate stole from him, according to deputies.

Authorities said the teenager had weapons and a written plan to kill the other boy. He even asked two others kids to help him with the murder, but they refused.

Officials did not say what kind of weapons the boy had or how he was planning to kill his classmate. The victim and his family were notified about the threat.
