Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White, 15, will not stand trial.
White's mother told KOAM that the court had ruled that her son was not competent to stand trial. He had been scheduled to go to trial in December. An interview with Mrs. White is scheduled for KOAM's 6 p.m. news.
White was 13 and a seventh grader at Memorial Middle School when he took an assault rifle into the school, fired a shot into the ceiling and aimed the weapon at Principal Steve Gilbreth. Authorities testified he atempted to pull the trigger but the weapon jammed.
White had been charged with two counts of assault, and single counts of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, and attempted escape. He has been in jail, in solitary confinement, since the October 2006 incident.
The case file was closed to the public last week.
