A 13-year-old boy who fatally shot himself in a middle school bathroom last week had plans to commit a school shooting but appeared to change his mind and took his own life, police said at a Thursday press conference.

Investigators found messages on his cellphone that showed the teen had been planning an attack for at least a week at Jackson Middle School, near Massillon. He also showed admiration for the two students who carried out the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado nearly 19 years ago.

"I'd hurt and destroy something bigger but my schools an easy target," Simons wrote in one message found on his phone.

"I want to leave a lasting impression on the world," he said in another message written days before he took the.22-calibre gun to school on Feb. 20. "I'm going to die doing it."
