Taft School Shooter To Be Tried As Adult

TAFT, Calif. — The 16-year-old who’s accused firing on his California classmates will be tried as an adult.

Police say Bryan Oliver walked into Taft Union High School last Thursday with a 12-gauge shotgun, critically injured one student and missed another before a teacher talked him into surrendering.

His attorney petitioned the judge for a closed court, but the judge said that the public has a right to see the process and cameras would be allowed during trial.

In addition to two counts of attempted murder, Oliver also faces two counts of assault with a firearm.
