NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — A prosecutor said Tuesday that a 13-year-old student accused of wounding a teacher and a classmate in a shooting at a suburban Indianapolis middle school will not be tried as an adult because of his age. Hamilton County Prosecutor D. Lee Buckingham said the boy would have faced 11 counts in adult court, including attempted murder and aggravated battery. He said the teen’s case cannot be heard in adult court under current Indiana law because his alleged attempt to commit murder wasn’t successful. SENT: 250 words. Will be updated.
AROUND THE STATE:
TERRE HAUTE — Courtney Dosch instructed children playing “Wax Museum” to be “super sneaky” as they made their way from the back of the Indiana State University recital hall to the stage. The Community School of the Arts theater instructor told the children they were to portray wax figures, and she was going to be a security guard. If she looked their way, they had to freeze or they were out of the game. The children were participating in a Community School of the Arts summer camp program called “Art Sampler,” with a theme of Discover Your Talents, in which they’ll do different activities in art, music, dance and theater, and they’ll also swim in the Student Recreation Center.
