Andrew Golden Subpoenaed for Civil Lawsuit

JONESBORO, AR - Andrew Golden, who as a boy gunned down four classmates and a teacher in a school shooting ten years ago, has been found and subpoenaed for a civil lawsuit.

Court documents filed in Craighead County Circuit Court show Golden, now 21, received the subpoena April 8 to appear back in the city.  He and fellow schoolmate Mitchell Johnson are named in the suit by Jonesboro attorney Bobby McDaniel, filed on behalf of the victims' relatives.

McDaniel already deposed Johnson, who put much of the blame 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 female students.  Ten others were wounded.
