Update: New Developments in Finland School Shooting

There's a new development in the case of the Finland teen who killed eight classmates then took his own life.

An attorney for a Pennsylvania teen who admitted plotting a school attack confirms the boy had chatted online with a teenage outcast in Finland.

The Finnish teen then went on to kill eight people and himself in a high school shooting there.

The attorney for 14-year-old Dillon Cossey says his client had chatted online about the Columbine massacre with the boy in Finland.

But Cossey's attorney says his client was horrified when he found out the boy in Finland had carried out the attack.

And he says the Pennsylvania teen never suspected the Finnish 18-year-old would follow through on a violent act.

Cossey was arrested in October for allegedly preparing an attack at a high school in suburban Philadelphia.
