Boy, 10, booked after spree with air gun at W.V. school

Police in West Valley City took a 10-year-old boy to a juvenile detention facility Friday for allegedly taking an air gun to school and shooting his classmates with it. The shootings allegedly occurred Wednesday and Thursday at Granger Elementary School, 2450 W. 3800 South, in West Valley City. Granite School District police Chief Randy Johnson said the boy was booked into a detention facility on suspicion of aggravated assault. The fourth-grade student brought a plastic-pellet-firing Airsoft pistol to school and shot students on the playground and in the classroom while the teacher was away, the chief said. "We went from a couple of victims to a total of 13 as of yesterday," Johnson said, adding the pellets bruised some children but there were no serious injuries. The boy threatened children so they wouldn't report what happened, but one girl told her parents about the shootings on Thursday night, he said. The parents contacted Granger's principal. Johnson said the boy has been suspended until the school conducts a review.
