NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A judge has scheduled a September fact-finding hearing for a 13-year-old boy accused of shooting another student and a teacher at a suburban Indianapolis school.

The boy’s attorney had asked Hamilton Circuit Court Judge Paul Felix to delay the hearing, which had been scheduled for this week and is similar to a trial.

Felix rescheduled the hearing for Sept. 10-11.
