Police in a Denver suburb say a 10-year-old boy accused of shooting six classmates with a BB gun is due in court next month to face misdemeanor charges.
Lakewood Police spokesman Steve Davis alleges the fourth-grader at Stein Elementary shot his classmates Monday while the teacher wasn't looking. Davis reported no serious injuries.
Davis says the boy was arrested on suspicion of assault and launching dangerous missiles that can cause injury, but he was never handcuffed.
Relatives drove the boy to the police department, where he was booked and issued a juvenile summons. David says the boy might face community service when he appears in court.
School district officials say bringing a weapon to school results in automatic expulsion.
