Jasper County Circuit Court records indicate the entire afternoon has been set aside on Friday, July 20, for the pre-trial hearing for Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White.
A decision is expected to be made on whether the case against White, 14, should be remanded to juvenile court. White was 13 and a seventh grader at Memorial, when he took an assault rifle into the school last October, shot into the ceiling and then allegedly attempted to fire again at Memorial Principal Steve Gilbreth. The gun jammed, preventing any further shots. White is charged with two counts of assault, and one count each of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, and attempted escape.
