400 rounds of ammo as well as a gun was brought into Frontier Middle School by a student Wednesday (Oct. 23). According to a report from KGW on Friday (Oct. 25), that boy is in court to find out if he will remain in police custody. The story has gone national, with people across the country trying to find out exactly what would lead an 11-year-old boy to doing this.
The student had claimed that he wanted to hurt someone who was bullying his friend and that the weapon was brought to the Vancouver middle school to do just that. Police were tipped off by the mother of the student, who became alarmed when she noticed that kitchen knives were missing. That alone may have kept things from getting much worse at the school.
For bringing the 400 rounds of ammo, the knives, and the gun into Frontier Middle School, the student has already been expelled. Now it is in the hands of the courts, with investigators advising prosecutors on what they have found in the case. One piece of evidence is a statement from the boy that he heard a voice in his head tell him that it was a good idea to take the weapons to school with him.
Later n Friday he will appear in court, where authorities will figure out the next step in this case.
