SeMo Teen Faces Trial for Firing Shotgun in School

MARCH 1, 2006 - Posted at 2:03 p.m. CST

 

FARMINGTON, MO - A southeast Missouri teen will go to trial for allegedly firing a shotgun in his high school last October.

Joshua Minks, 17, will have his trial date set later this month.  He is charged with four counts of assault and one count of carrying a loaded firearm on school property.

According to police and court records, the former Farmington High School student came to school on October 11 dressed in all-black clothing and a hood.

Prosecutors say Minks fired a shotgun at a bathroom ceiling.  No one was hurt in the incident and the school was evacuated. 

Yesterday, witnesses and students testified at a preliminary hearing.

Minks is jailed on $250,000 bond.
