Vancouver boy pleads guilty in school shooting plot

The 12-year-old boy who brought weapons to his Vancouver middle school in October has changed his plea to guilty.

The incident happened in October. Police say he brought a gun, knives and 400 rounds of ammunition to Frontier Middle School. Earlier this year, a judge ruled that the boy was competent to stand trial.

On Thursday, he pleaded guilty in exchange for a reduced charge of two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. He was originally charged with attempted murder. Investigators say the boy planned to shoot a student who was bullying his friend.

The boy will serve two years of detention and two years of probation. He will get credit for the 141 days that he has already served.
