The boy’s classmate, eight-year-old Amina Kocer-Bowman, remained in critical condition Thursday morning after undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound, said Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Leila Gray.
Authorities say the boy brought a gun to Armin Jahr Elementary where it discharged from his backpack, piercing through and hitting Kocer-Bowman.
The boy was taken into custody Wednesday after being booked into Kitsap County in Washington State juvenile detention for investigation of unlawful possession of a gun, bringing a dangerous weapon to school and third-degree assault.
The gun was recovered from a classroom. Police did not immediately describe it.
There have been shootings at schools that involved younger children. In 2000, 6-year-old Kayla Rolland, a Michigan first-grader, was fatally shot by a 6-year-old classmate who brought a gun from home. Last year, a 6-year-old kindergartner at a Houston elementary school accidentally fired a gun as he was showing it off to friends, injuring three students.
