UPDATE: Joplin teen accused of foiled school shooting

This is the story of Thomas White, now 15, who brought an assault rifle to his Joplin middle school back in 2006. White is being prosecuted as an adult -- he's accused of threatening teachers and students, and even trying to fire at his principal. (The gun reportedly jammed.)

The latest development? His lawyers want him tested to see if he's mentally competent to stand trial. He's been in jail so long, they think he might be mentally ill, possibly schizophrenic, the Joplin Globe reports.
