The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office says it will not immediately release any details about the suspect in Friday’s school shooting at Noblesville West Middle School.

Noblesville Police say a male student brought guns into a classroom Friday morning, injuring student Ella Whistler and teacher Jason Seaman. The suspect was quickly taken into custody.

In a statement today (Tuesday), the Prosecutor’s Office says the investigation is ongoing and they are bound by law to protect the privacy of children.

The statement says very limited information may be released after they file a petition detailing the alleged crime.

It’s not clear when a petition will be filed or when the juvenile could appear in court.
