ROCHESTER HILLS (WWJ) - A Rochester Hills teen could face juvenile charges after she made a "kill list" to help her vent. 

According to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, several students at West Middle School saw the girl making what she'd titled "Kill List for Future” — with five students' names on it — on Wednesday. The kids told a teacher who then witnessed the teen adding more names to the list, officials said.

The teacher cleared the classroom and notified school administrators who called the police. 

When police interviewed the 14-year-old girl and her parents, she allegedly admitted to making the list. The teen told a School Resource Officer and detectives that the list helped her to vent her "frustration and feelings." She said she wasn't planning to hurt anyone, and that she wanted help. 

Investigators searched the girl's home and found that she did not have access to weapons.

The teen was suspended from school and released to her parents, who agreed that they would petition the hospital for a mental health evaluation.

The Oakland County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing a  juvenile petition to determine if  the girl will face charges. Her name will not be released due to her age.
