The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office has dismissed charges against a ten year old boy who allegedly brought a BB gun to an Elmwood Place school. The judge declared the boy incompetent to stand trial due to his young age, saying he did not understand the legal process enough to contribute to his defense.
Elmwood Place Police say the boy showed a BB gun to five fellow students while in the bathroom in April. The tip of the BB gun was broken off, but one of the students told police the boy with the gun threatened to shoot him if he told anyone that the gun was in the school. One of the students immediately told school officials, who called police.
The boy was facing a charge of inducing panic.
