A decision on whether Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White, 16, is able to stand trial may be made as soon as next week.
A 9 a.m. Friday, May 1, hearing has been scheduled, according to court records. The hearing had been set for May 15.
White faces two counts of assault, and single counts of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, and attempted escape. White, at the time, a 13-year-old seventh grader at Memorial, brought an assault rifle into the school in October 2006, fired the weapon into the ceiling, then pointed it at Principal Steve Gilbreth and attempted to fire, but the weapon jammed according to police.
White has been in custody since that day.
