VANCOUVER, Wash. — Police say an 11-year-old who took a gun to his Vancouver, Wash., middle school intended to shoot another student to prevent him from bullying a friend.
The police report was released today as the boy appeared in Clark County Juvenile Court.
The report says the boy heard a voice telling him the killing was a good idea.
The Columbian reports the judge ordered a mental competency hearing. The boy remains in custody and his case will be reviewed Friday.
The boy was arrested Wednesday after a gun, ammo and knives were found on the boy or in his backpack at Frontier Middle School. No one was hurt, and the school is back to normal today.
