Lethbridge Herald - - HEADLINE | NEWS CANADA & BEYOND -

A Washington state stu­dent ac­cused of a deadly school shoot­ing had been sus­pended for bring­ing threat­en­ing notes to school shortly be­fore the at­tack.

Free­man School Dis­trict Su­per­in­ten­dent Randy Rus­sell tells Spokane The Spokesman-Re­view the dis­trict fol­lowed pro­to­col by sus­pend­ing the stu­dent and send­ing him for a men­tal eval­u­a­tion.

The news­pa­per re­ported the shoot­ing oc­curred on the first day 15-year-old Caleb Sharpe re­turned from the sus­pen­sion to Free­man High School in Rockford.

Court doc­u­ments say he pulled an as­sault weapon from a bag, but it jammed.

Po­lice say Sharpe pulled a pis­tol from his coat and shot and killed a 15-year-old boy, and wounded three fe­male stu­dents.

Sharpe was ar­rested and has yet to make an ap­pear­ance in ju­ve­nile court.
