March 25, 1998

DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) _ A 13-year-old boy angered at being suspended from school was arrested today for allegedly firing a shot at his principal, police said.

No injuries were reported.

The boy admitted he tried to shoot Principal Mateo Rizzo, police Sgt. Matt Bushong said.

Police officers sent to Fernando Rivera Intermediate School found a bullet lodged in the wall of a building near where Rizzo had been standing, and a witness who reported having seen the boy with a gun earlier.

Officers said the boy led them to a nearby bush where they found a .25-caliber semiautomatic pistol.

The boy, who had been suspended on March 20, was not identified because of his age.

Earlier today, in Princeton, Texas, a student slashed three teachers with a razor when they tried to stop him from cutting himself.

On Tuesday, an 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy opened fire at a school in Jonesboro, Ark., killing four students and a teacher.
