A 13-year-old French boy set out on Tuesday to mow down his teachers with a shotgun but abandoned the plan when he arrived at the school and found it surrounded by police, officials said.

The boy’s parents raised the alarm when they realised he had taken the family gun from their house near Beauvais, north of Paris, and was headed to his school in Beauvais itself, officials said.

The teenager was in custody on suspicion of attempted murder and admitted his homicidal intentions during an interview, Beauvais prosecutor James Juan said in a statement.

He wanted “to attack his teachers who quarrelled with him even though he had done nothing (wrong)”, Juan said.

The boy, said to be a video game enthusiast, had on Monday left a message on his blog stating that “this is the last day of my life”.

“He left his home with a loaded hunting rifle and 25 cartridges,” said senior local official Raymond Yeddou. “He went in the direction of the school where, according to his declarations, he intended to kill his teachers.”
