VANCOUVER — A juvenile court judge has decided that 12-year-old Quincy Tuttle is competent to stand trial on attempted murder charges.

He’s accused of bringing over 400 rounds of ammunition, a gun and knives to Frontier Middle School in October.

The judge says even though the boy is young and his brain is still developing, he’s bright, intelligent and capable of aiding in his own defense.

Judge Scott collier will meet with the defense attorney and prosecutor next week to see how they can better help Quincy understand the court process.  A trial date will be set for late January.
