Jared Cano

The Tampa teen accused of plotting a massacre at Freedom High School.

Cano was 16 when police arrested him on Aug. 16, 2011 and took bomb-making materials from his New Tampa apartment. Tampa police had received a tip from one of Cano's friends, who remains a confidential informer.

Police also found videos and a journal in which Cano, now 18, explains his plans.
