VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — An 11-year-old boy accused of bringing a gun, knives and more than 400 rounds of ammunition to his middle school was headed to court Thursday after being arrested for investigation of attempted murder.
The boy was expected to make his first appearance in Clark County Juvenile Court as detectives investigated whether anyone else knew what he was up to on Wednesday, when the weapons were found, police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said.
Frontier Middle School notified police that ammo had been discovered at the school. Arriving officers found the weapons and took the boy into custody. His name has not been released.
The school, which has 900 students, and nearby Pioneer Elementary School, which has about 600 students, were declared safe after a two-hour lockdown.
Parents were notified through social media and a letter sent home with students, said Evergreen Public Schools spokesman Kris Fay. Classes were back to normal Thursday.
There was no indication other students were involved, Fay said.
The boy has been expelled. He did not have a reputation as a troublemaker, Fay said.
"This kid has not been on the radar for this," he said.
The school will review the incident, but Fay said it appears all the protocols were followed.
"From the safety standpoint, everything went well yesterday," he said.
