Teenage white supremacist Derek Shrout has been arrested in Russell County, Alabama, after a teacher discovered a journal detailing his plot to attack his school with homemade explosives.

“The journal contained several plans that looked like potential terrorist attacks, and attacks of violence and danger on the school,” said Russell County sheriff Heath Taylor. Six students and one teacher were specifically targeted by Shrout, all but one of whom were black. Shrout’s journal indicated he though the white male on his list was gay.

“That’s the reason the white male was on the list. It screams hate crime,” said Heath.
