New details revealed in court documents filed this morning about the Harrison teenager accused of bringing a loaded gun to school. It happened January 25. A girl told the Harrison Superintendent that another student had a loaded gun at school. School officials confronted the boy and he showed them the loaded gun and another gun in his backpack.
According to the petition, the boy also had nearly 50 rounds of ammunition in his backpack. He told a deputy that he planned to run away and live in the mountains and use the guns for hunting.
According to the petition the deputy: "asked the Youth if he intended to shoot anyone at the school. The Youth said that he had thought about shooting up the school but more for political reasons. The Youth stated that he wanted to prove that you don't need an assault rifle to shoot up a school."
The petition also states that the boy showed two other students, a girl and a boy, the guns. The girl wrote in her statement that the defendant said to her "If you tell a teacher I will kill you."
The 14 year old defendant is charged with criminal endangerment and is being held at a youth detention center in Deer Lodge. His next court date is February 25.
