ABC News 

A 13-year-old boy from Ohio has been charged in connection with a plot to commit a mass shooting at a synagogue in September after he allegedly made detailed threats on Discord, a messaging platform popular among gamers, according to court documents.

The individual, who is only identified by the initials J.R. in a criminal complaint due to his age, has been charged in Stark County juvenile court with inducing panic and disorderly conduct, according to charging documents.

The teen was reported by Discord to law enforcement in early September after he created “a detailed plan to complete a mass shooting at the Temple Israel” in Canton, according to the documents. The report initiated the investigation that led to the suspect’s arrest, according to police and the company.
