NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A 13-year-old boy mostly remained silent during an appearance in court Monday, more than two weeks after he was accused of shooting a classmate and a teacher in suburban Indianapolis.
The boy answered "yes" or "no" to a series of questions Monday. He was accompanied by his parents. The 11 charges against him in juvenile court include attempted murder.
A magistrate entered a denial of the charges, the equivalent of a not-guilty plea. The teen will return to court on June 25. His parents and lawyer declined to speak to reporters.
A student and a teacher were injured at Noblesville West Middle School on May 25. The teacher, Jason Seaman, is credited with saving many lives by tackling the shooter.
Authorities say the boy was carrying two handguns and a knife when he opened fire inside the Noblesville West Middle School classroom on May 25.
Thirteen-year-old Ella Whistler's family said last week that she was shot seven times and remained hospitalized. Science teacher Jason Seaman was shot as he tackled the shooter. He was released from a hospital the next day.
