A Feb. 21 juvenile court arraignment is scheduled for a 12-year-old boy accused of shooting at the vice principal at Thomas Jefferson Junior High School Friday.
The boy will remain in custody at least until the arraignment and does not face the possibility of being certified to stand trial as an adult because he is less than 14 years old, said Capt. George Q. Nielsen, juvenile division commander at the Salt Lake County sheriff's department. A detention hearing was held Monday morning. A sheriff's department report says the boy fired a .22-caliber handgun in the direction of the Kearns junior high school's vice principal, William R. Crumbaugh, shortly after 9 a.m.
