The Hilliard teen charged with plotting a shooting at Davidson High School in 2016 has pleaded no contest to an adult charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

Sentencing is pending for 17-year-old John Staley III, who was arrested after a student heard him discussing the plot on a school bus and turned him in.
