WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - A 17-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and second-degree malicious mischief for breaking a window at College Place High School and striking the principal with a spear.

The Union-Bulletin reports that the boy entered his plea on Tuesday. Similar charges against the boy’s 19-year-old brother, Jaymond Oakhurst, who was with the 17-year-old during the attack, were dropped due to reasons of mental incompetency.

Officials say the brothers entered the adjacent middle school lobby on June 8 wielding a spear and wooden staff. After breaking a window with the spear, the brothers are accused of attacking Principal Dale Stopperan, partially severing his right ear and injuring his elbow and knee.
