An 11-year-old was arrested on Wednesday in Vancouver, Washington after he brought a handgun, over 400 rounds of ammunition, and several knives to school. Frontier Middle School, where the boy attends, was put in lock-down for two hours while police searched the grounds -- but luckily there were no injuries. The arrest comes after a 12-year-old boy shot and killed a teacher in Nevada (and wounded two other students) on Monday, and a 14-year-old boy was charged with murdering a math teacher in Massachusetts on Wednesday.


"A Washington state middle school boy was arrested Wednesday and faces an attempted murder charge, after he brought 400 rounds of ammunition, multiple knives and a handgun to his school, police said.

The 11-year-old was booked into a juvenile detention facility after the incident that caused the lockdown of Frontier Middle School, Vancouver Police said."

Police did not say who was allegedly being targeted.

In California, a sheriff's deputy mistakenly thought he saw a teen carrying an assault rifle on a California street on Tuesday and shot him dead.

Over the weekend in North Carolina, a 2-year-old girl fatally shot herself in Fayetteville, and the toddler's father faces involuntary manslaughter charges.

Still no gun control talk in Congress...
