Manteca Bulletin - - Nation -

Iowa (AP) — Court doc­u­ments say a 12-year-old Iowa boy pointed a gun at his teacher’s face and pulled the trig­ger, but the safety was on.

The Courier re­ports that court doc­u­ments say the boy en­tered a North Scott Ju­nior High class­room on Aug. 31 with a .22-cal­iber hand­gun and or­dered ev­ery­one to the floor be­fore he tried to shoot the teacher. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say when the loaded gun failed to fire, the teacher wres­tled it away from him.

The boy is charged with at­tempted mur­der, hav­ing a weapon on school grounds and as­sault while dis­play­ing a dan­ger­ous weapon. He re­mains in the Scott County Ju­ve­nile De­ten­tion Cen­ter.
