Calif. school shooting teen charged as adult

A 16-year-old boy accused of shooting a classmate at a California high school has been charged as an adult.

The Kern County district attorney’s office announced on Monday that Bryan Oliver has been charged with attempted murder and other counts in the shooting on Thursday at Taft Union High School.

A 16-year-old boy was wounded in the shooting. People in the small San Joaquin Valley town who know the suspect have said he was teased for his small stature.

They describe him as smart but say he sometimes said irreverent things that brought scorn from classmates.
