11-Year-Old Charged After Bringing Gun To School
The Washington State child was charged with assault and other crimes after bringing a handgun, 400 bullets and kitchen knives to school.
The boy brought a semi-automatic .22 caliber handgun and the other weapons from his house on Wednesday, with the intent of attacking another student at the Frontier Middle School in Vancouver, Washington, said Kim Kapp, a Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman.
“He told officers he had heard a voice in his head telling him to shoot another student,” said Kapp. “Fortunately, everything was found very early into this situation.”
The school, about 20 miles from Portland, Oregon, was put on lockdown for roughly two hours and there were no injuries, Kapp said.
