Trial Set for Malcolm Teen

By  | 

Trial has been set in the case of a Malcolm teenager accused of bringing explosives and a gun to school.

Seventeen-year-old Joshua Magee will appear in Lancaster County District Court on July 6, to face first-degree attempted murder charger and two other charges.

Magee was arrested last month at Malcolm Middle and High School for bringing bomb making materials and a rifle to school in his car. The car was parked in a lot about 75 to 100 yards from the school's main building.

Authorities responded to the school of more than 450 students before anyone was injured. Officials have said it could have been the worst high school tragedy since the massacre of 13 people at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, over five years ago.

Magee faces one to 50 years in prison if convicted on the attempted murder charge.
