Supreme Court to hear Memorial Middle School shooter case tomorrow

The Missouri Supreme Court will hear arguments from Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White's attorneys tomorrow on why their client should be returned to juvenile court.
White, 15, has been in jail since October 2006, when he took an assault rifle into Memorial Middle School, fired the weapon into the ceiling, then pointed it at Principal Steve Gilbreth. Authorities claim White attempted to pull the trigger several times, but the gun jammed.

White, who was 13 and a seventh grader at Memorial at the time, is charged with two counts of assault and single counts of armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, and attempted escape.
