(Newser) – A Long Island teenager who apparently idolized the Columbine killers has been hospitalized after a pipe bomb he was making blew up. The boy, 17, had photos of the students responsible for the Coumbine massacre in his bedroom. He's in stable condition and will likely face charges, reports the New York Post. The teen made the bomb with gunpowder from bullets owned by his dad, a retired New York City cop.
