S tudents in Grandview are no longer facing charges for allegedly plotting a school shooting.

Three students were facing felony charges. Those charges have been dropped.

A fourth student, a 15-year-old boy, pleaded guilty to charges of minor in possession of a firearm in early March.

Yakima County prosecutor said they dismissed the charges against a 15-year-old girl and two boys, 14 and 15 years-old, because there wasn’t enough evidence. Charges can be refiled if new evidence is found.

The students were arrested in February after a witness reportedly overheard them making violent comments. Prosecutors said the witness is not fully cooperating in the investigation.
