14-year-old boy indicted as juvenile in Ohio school shooting

HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A 14-year-old boy accused of shooting and wounding two students in a school cafeteria has been indicted as a juvenile on charges including attempted murder in Ohio.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser says a grand jury today indicted the boy under a serious juvenile offender classification on four counts of attempted murder, four counts of felonious assault and one count of inducing panic.

James Austin Hancock is charged in the Feb. 29 shooting at a Madison Local Schools campus near Middletown. He has denied the charges through his attorney.

Gmoser says Hancock could be sentenced to the Ohio Department of Youth Services until his 21st birthday if he’s convicted of attempted murder.
