Kentucky teen arraigned on school shooting charges

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Louisville teenager facing multiple charges stemming from a shooting has been ordered to stay away from the high school where the incident took place.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Judith McDonald Burkman on Monday set bond for 16-year-old Andre Banks at $30,000 and told him to have no contact with Fern Creek High School. The judge also entered a not guilty plea for Banks.

Banks is charged as an adult with first-degree assault, wanton endangerment, unlawful possession of a weapon on school property, tampering with physical evidence, possession of a handgun by a minor and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

Police say he shot a 15-year-old inside the school on Sept. 30, but the teen wasn’t the target.

The next court date for Banks was set for Jan. 8.
