(Scroll down for video) Two school boys were arrested and charged after they planned to girl a female classmate because she was rude, according to police reports in Washington.

The two boys, who are in 5th grade came to school one day armed with a semi-automatic pistol, ammunition clip, knife and plotted to kill a classmate in the state of Washington, but were stopped when another student told a school employee, who told the authorities last week.

The two boys told police that the girl was rude and annoying. They will not be tried as adults and will be in court on Wednesday for a hearing, the Washington prosecutor, said.

The two boys, aged 10 and 11, told authorities that they also planned to kill six more students at Fort Colville Elementary School in Colville, Washington, and they even identified the targets from a class list provided by school employees, according to court documents.

The plan called for the older boy to stab the girl with a 3.25-inch knife last week and for the younger boy to scare off those who responded with a 45-gauge Remington 1911 semi-automatic firearm, court papers said.

The younger boy had been in a brief dating relationship with the girl, but he told authorities that she was rude and made fun of him in front of his friends,” the court papers said.
