Jonesboro

NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports from Jonesboro, Arkansas on the aftermath of yesterday's shooting at the Westside Middle School. People in the town are still trying to figure out why two young boys - ages 13 and 11 - opened fire on their middle school classmates, killing 5 people and wounding 10 others. There is much speculation swirling around town, but authorities there are not saying anything about a motive. The boys will be arraigned in juvenile court today, but local prosecutors are looking into whether they can be tried as adults.
