(DailyMail) A juvenile accused of opening fire at a Colorado school last month that left one student dead and eight others wounded sought revenge on classmates who bullied him because he’s transgender, court documents released on Thursday revealed.
Alec McKinney, 16, told police he enlisted a second student, Devon Erickson, 18, to help him carry out the shooting at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.
Both teens are charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the May 7 rampage. Prosecutors have charged McKinney as an adult, but his lawyers are seeking to have his case moved to juvenile court.
