Teen could be tried as adult

NORMAL -- Prosecutors want a 14-year old who opened fire in a classroom to be tried as an adult. The boy is accused of bringing two handguns, a hatchet and a knife to Normal Community High School in September.

Authorities say he fired several shots inside the classroom. No one was hurt.

The teen's attorney says he'll fight taking the case to adult court. If it's moved, the boy could face more than the maximum of seven years he faces in a juvenile court.
