ELDRIDGE, Iowa -- A 12-year-old accused of pointing a loaded gun at a teacher is being charged with attempted murder in adult court.
In August of 2018 the North Scott Junior High School student was disarmed by a teacher after bringing a loaded .22 caliber handgun to school, according to Eldridge Police. He was charged with attempted murder.
Police said the student pointed the gun at a person's face and pulled the trigger. An affidavit named two victims, one is a teacher at the school.
According to Scott County's District Court Administrator, in early December the student was waived to adult court as a youthful offender, not as a regular adult.
