NOBLESVILLE, Ind.–A fact-finding hearing for the 13-year-old boy accused of shooting two people at Noblesville West Middle School in May won’t happen until September.

It was originally scheduled for June 25 and 26, but the boy’s attorney asked Hamilton Circuit Court Judge Paul Felix to reschedule the hearing. It will now take place at 9 am September 10 and 11.

It would be open to the public unless Felix decides to close it by court order.

The case is being heard in juvenile court. 

He is accused of shooting student Ella Whistler and science teacher Jason Seaman. Both Seaman and Whistler survived. 

Authorities say Seaman tackled the boy shortly after he entered Seaman’s classroom with two handguns and started shooting. 

Whistler’s family said she was shot 7 times, but is recovering. Seaman was shot 3 times.
