A man who identifies as a woman faces charges for allegedly planning to carry out mass shooting attacks against multiple schools in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office announced this week.

The alleged plan comes on the heels of a deadly shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, where six people—including three children—were shot and killed by yet another transgender person. Audrey Hale, the perpetrator, was shot and killed on site after messaging a friend on social media that "I am planning to die today."

The perpetrator of the alleged plan, 19-year-old William Whitworth, was charged late last week after police investigated threats to the schools in the Colorado Springs Academy School District. Police says Whitworth identifies as "Lilly." He has been charged with two counts of criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree, one count of criminal mischief, one count of menacing and one count of interference with staff, faculty or students of educational institution, The Epoch Times reported.

He is being held in jail on $75,000 bond and his preliminary hearing is set for May 5.

Like Hale, Whitworth previously attended schools in the district where he planned to commit the murders. Arrest records say a family member to whom Whitworth allegedly divulged his plan multiple times turned Whitworth in to authorities. He was said to have threated to "shoot up a school," Colorado NBC affiliate KOAA-TV reported.

Police reportedly visited Whitworth's home to question him regarding the allegations. Police believed Whitworth to be intoxicated at the time and allegedly nodded "yes" when police asked him if he planned to carry out a school shooting. But reports said he made plans for about a month to attack the school, citing "for no particular reason."

KOAA-TV reported that no firearms or explosives were found in the suspect's possession or at his home at the time of arrest.

The news of the school shooting threats came one day after students across southern Colorado and across the nation walked out of class to protest nationwide gun violence. The walkout was organized by the group Students Demand Action.

March CM CoverAccording to law enforcement officials, Whitworth's arrest affidavit included a "manifesto' with an entire page regarding mass killings, that allegedly included drawings of classrooms and a detonator. The Epoch Times reported that Whitworth "allegedly told police that he had watched a YouTube video to learn how to create a detonator.

A spokesperson for the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office told The Colorado Springs Gazette that Whitworth was in the process of transitioning to a female.

Praise God that this evil, demonic plan was thwarted and no one was hurt.
