All five suspects have now been named. They are: Gabriel Quiroga, 15; Jessica Good, 17;  Andrew Totten, 15;  Anastasia Lakin, 17; and Christopher Gibson, 18.


Original Story:

Five Flowing Wells High School students were arrested Wednesday on charges of Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder. Tucson Police Department say they conspired to kill a fellow student.

The students were allegedly planning to kill another student with a knife. The plan was thwarted when a student alerted school administration, who turned the case over to TPD detectives with the Special Investigation Division to conduct interviews. One of the suspects had a knife in his possession.

Police say the attack was planned because of an issue the group had with the target. One of the suspects is 18-year-old Christopher Gibson. The other four of the suspects are minors and their names are currently being withheld.

This is the second high profile arrest at the Northwest-side school. In January a Flowing Wells student was arrested for aggravated assault after a student was attacked outside the school The victim was hospitalized with injuries suffered in the attack.
