NOBLESVILLE — A 13-year-old boy has admitted that he shot and wounded a classmate and a teacher at a suburban Indianapolis school.
The youth admitted to the May 25 attack at Noblesville West Middle School during a Monday juvenile court hearing.
The boy's attorneys read a statement in which the youth apologized to teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old classmate Ella Whistler.
The boy entered a Hamilton County courtroom dressed in an orange-and-white striped jumpsuit. He appeared stoic as he sat next to his mother and father.
A juvenile court judge will decide on the disposition in the case at a later date. His options include ordering the boy to spend time in a mental health treatment center or to be held at a state juvenile detention center.
Prosecutors say a 13-year-old boy accused of shooting a classmate and a teacher at a suburban Indianapolis school was carrying two handguns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition on the day of attack.
Prosecutors said during a juvenile court hearing Monday that the boy took the weapons and ammunition from a safe in his family's home.
Prosecutors say a 13-year-old boy made a video warning of violence the day before he allegedly shot and wounded a classmate and a teacher at their suburban Indianapolis school. The boy filmed the video in his family's basement showing a .45-caliber handgun and a .22-caliber handgun with a silencer.
The Associated Press isn't using the boy's name because he is charged as a juvenile.
The Indianapolis Star reports that prosecutors said the boy pronounced in the video: "Tomorrow's Friday, you know what that means. I have to take other people's lives before I take my own."
The teen is accused of shooting teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old classmate Ella Whistler on May 25 at Noblesville West Middle School, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.
