ROSWELL — A Roswell judge concluded Friday that the 12-year-old boy accused of opening fire in his middle school gym and injuring two students is competent to stand trial.
State District Judge Freddie Romero presided over a brief hearing for the boy, who is too young to be tried as an adult.
Romero set another hearing for the end of April and ordered that the boy be held in Bernalillo County after prosecutors raised concerns about keeping him in a juvenile detention facility near Roswell.
