Second Westside Shooter's Deposition Re-Set for May 15

JONESBORO, AR - The deposition of Andrew Golden, one of the two boys who opened fire on teachers and classmates at a Jonesboro-area middle school in 1998, has been rescheduled for May 15.

Jonesboro attorney Bobby McDaniel says both Golden and his mother now have lawyers representing them.  McDaniel says he changed the date as a courtesy for the other lawyers.

Both Golden and Mitchell Johnson are named in McDaniel's civil suit, filed on behalf of the victims' relatives to stop the two from profiting from the slayings.  McDaniel previously has questioned Johnson, who put much of the blame for the shooting on Golden.

In 1998, Johnson, then 13, and Golden, then 11, shot at students and teachers at Westside Middle School after Golden pulled a fire alarm.  The boys killed English teacher Shannon Wright and four students, ages 11 and 12.  Ten others were wounded.
