A pretty jarring story out of Washington state, where an 11-year-old boy was last night arrested and faces an attempted murder charge following the police discovery of a handgun, more than 400 rounds of ammunition, and several knives at a Vancouver, Wash., middle school. No one was hurt in the incident, which prompted a two-hour lockdown at the middle school and an elementary school next door yesterday morning, the Columbian reports. The boy has been placed in juvenile detention, CNN reports. (More juvenile crime stories.)
