ORLANDO, Fla. -

Deputies released a report on Friday about a shooting spree plot that was foiled in January at an Orlando high school.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies said in the report that two students at Timber Creek High School, one aged 15-years-old and the other 16-year-old, had allegedly plotted a shooting spree at the school in mid-January.

Deputies said the plot was stopped when other students, who became aware of the plan through text messages, told officials.

Both students said they heard voices in their heads, according to deputies, telling them to commit violent acts.

The two teens were taken into custody for psychiatric evaluation under the Baker Act. Deputies said no students at the school were ever harmed.
