Champaign County shooting suspect due in court

Urbana, OHIO (AP) -- An prosecutor says in Champaign County says he will ask that a school shooting case be moved to the adult criminal justice system.

Authorities say a 17-year-old shooter fired a 12-gauge shotgun in the Friday morning attack at West Liberty-Salem High School.

Two students were wounded.  Sixteen-year old Logan Cole, the one most severely hurt, has been moved out of intensive care at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  That, according to a social media post Sunday by his father.

The suspect was initially held in a juvenile center on a charge of felonious assault.

Champaign County Prosecutor Kevn Talebi says the teen will face a number of additional charges, including attempted murder.

Talebi says moving the case to Common Pleas court is appropriate because of the nature of the charges and also for the safety of the community.

The West Liberty-Salem Schools district plans to resume classes Tuesday.
