A 12-year-old Suffolk County boy has been suspended after he allegedly created a "hit list" describing, in detail, how he would kill fellow classmates.

The list included 20 or so names and disturbing images and descriptions.
 
Noah Ludlow, who was shown the list Tuesday by the classmate, saw his name on it and says he asked, "Is that me?" 
 
The student, who has not been identified, said yes. 
 
Ludlow told school officials about the list, and they notified the Southold Police. The student was suspended from  school and underwent a psychiatric evaluation.
 
Police searched his locker and his home, but did not find any weapons to back up the alleged threats.
 
"I don't believe there is a danger," said Chief Martin Flatley. "It is safe for kids to go back to the school."
 
Ludlow's mom, Laura Pace, is furious that the school didn't notify parents of the list until Friday, and refuses to let her son return to school unless security is increased.
 
The superintendent of Southold schools said the district took the proper precautions, and notified the parents upon the investigation. 
 
The student will have to meet with the superintendent after his suspension is over to determine if he can return to school.
