Hearing to decide if student will be tried as adult delayed

May 17, 2018

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A hearing to determine if a Freeman High School student charged with shooting one classmate to death and wounding three others will be tried as an adult has been delayed again.

The hearing for 16-year-old Caleb Sharpe was set to begin Monday.

The Spokesman-Review reports that prosecutors asked for a delay until August.

Sharpe has been in custody since the Sept. 13 shootings at Freeman High, which is south of Spokane.

Sharpe faces one charge of aggravated first degree murder, three charges of attempted first degree murder and 52 counts of second-degree assault. He was 15 at the time of the shootings.

The Associated Press doesn’t typically name juvenile suspects but is doing so because of the severity of the accusations and because Sharpe’s name was released in public documents.
