WINFIELD, MO. (KMOX) –  Authorities have made a correction in the case of a student charged with planning a mass shooting at Winfield High School.

Lincoln County sheriff’s officials say the student’s name is Donald Waters, not Walters as previously announced.

Donald Waters is being held on a charge of Conspiracy Assualt in the first degree.


An 18-year-old Winfield High School student is charged with conspiring to shoot people at his school.

Lincoln County deputies say two Winfield High School students said Donald  Walters had tried to recruit them to execute a school shooting at the Winfield High School.  Both students said Walters told them to make a list of people they wanted dead.

During an interview with detectives police say Walters stated his plan was to run through the hall at school as fast as he could and shoot as many people as he could.

He also admitted to researching on the internet on how to make guns and other weapons. They also discovered youtube clips on how to build a rail gun and how to shoot guns.

His computer was seized and investigators say they found images of weapons with a statement  “I hate everything and everyone, I wanted everyone to die.”

Walters is charged with Conspiracy Assault in the first degree and is held in the Lincoln County jail on $50,000 cash bond.
