Boy Brought Gun To School, Remains In Juvenile Detention

Posted: Updated:

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - An 11-year-old Vancouver boy who took a gun to school will remain in juvenile detention at least until Tuesday while a mental evaluation continues.

The Columbian reports the boy appeared Friday before Juvenile Court Commissioner Jennifer Snider who heard psychologist Shirley Shen testify the boy has some severe mental health issues. She believes he poses a low risk to the community but is concerned because he often wakes up in the middle of the night and walks the streets.

Another review hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.

The boy was arrested Wednesday at Frontier Middle school with a .22-caliber handgun, more than 400 rounds of ammunition and multiple knives.

He told police a voice told him it was a good idea to kill another student who called his friend gay.
