Globe reports Memorial Middle School shooter pleads guilty

The Joplin Globe is reporting that Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White, 16, pleaded guilty this morning in Jasper County Circuit Court to two counts of assault and one count of armed criminal action.

White was a seventh grader at Memorial in October 2006 when he took an assault rifle into the school, fired it into the ceiling and then pointed it at Principal Steve Gilbreth and attempted to pull the trigger. Police reports indicate the gun jammed.
