NORMAL -- Chilling new details about Friday's school shooting. Prosecutors say the accused shooter had an arsenal of weapons in his backpack.

The suspect is a 14-year old boy. His name isn't being released because he's a juvenile.

The boy is accused of bringing three pistols, two knives and a hatchet to Normal Community High School Friday. Police say he fired one of the guns in class more than once. They say he had "access to" the weapons.
