Police arrested a 14-year-old boy on charges of shooting two teenagers outside a rural high school earlier this week. Joseph Colt Todd of Stamps was charged as an adult with two counts of first-degree battery for the attack. Todd entered a plea of not guilty at his arraignment and was released on a $20,000 bond. Sheriff John Kilgore of Lafayette County said Todd told officials he acted in retaliation but had not intended to shoot the students.
