Student Pleads Not Guilty in School Shooting

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – A student charged with killing one classmate and wounding three others at a Washington state high school in 2017 is pleading not guilty to all the charges in adult court.

Caleb Sharpe entered the pleas Friday in Spokane County Superior Court.

Trial was set for Oct. 7 and he remains in the Spokane County Jail on $1 million bail.

The 17-year-old Sharpe faces one charge of premeditated first degree murder, three charges of attempted first degree murder and 51 second degree assault charges for the shootings at Freeman High School. Student Sam Shrahan, 15, was killed.

Sharpe was 15 at the time. Judge Michael Price ruled last month that he would be tried as an adult.

Defense attorney Bevan Maxey said the new trial date set by Price was unrealistic.
