SPANAWAY, Wash. (AP) - A 13-year-old boy has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges in connection with pointing a rifle at students at a Spanaway bus stop.

The teen was charged Thursday with assault and felony weapons charges.

Pierce County prosecutors say the boy stole his grandfather’s guns and pointed one of them at two students headed to middle school Wednesday morning. The kids reportedly were afraid of being shot and walked to another bus stop.

The students reported the incident when they got to school, and officials called the sheriff. Investigators later found the rifle in some bushes near the bus stop along with 300 rounds of ammunition.

Police say the teen told them he sold two other guns to other students for cash, pot and drug paraphernalia.

The student remains at a juvenile detention center.
