    A pair of Georgia teenagers are accused of fashioning a homemade explosive to be used at their high school, NBC News reported.

    Seventeen-year-olds Alfred Dupree, of Acworth, and Victoria McCurley, of Woodstock, were arrested and face terroristic threats, attempted murder, arson and explosives charges.

    Investigators are testing materials used in the alleged explosive device found in McCurley's home to determine what was in it, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office.

    Etowah High School said in a statement to parents that the students face "severe administrative disciplinary actions." It was not immediately clear if either suspect had retained an attorney.
