SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say two teenagers suspected of plotting a mass shooting at a suburban Los Angeles high school have denied charges that they made criminal threats against a third boy.

The 16- and 17-year-old appeared Wednesday in Pasadena Juvenile Court. They have been in custody since their arrest Monday.

Police in South Pasadena say the two were working on a plot to target three staffers at their local high school and kill as many students as possible.

They are charged only with threatening another teenager after sharing their intent with him. However, police say the investigation is continuing and additional charges could be filed.

KCAL-TV says parents of both boys apologized to the community.
