ELDRIDGE, Iowa (KCRG) - Testimony is underway for a 13-year-old Iowa boy charged as an adult with attempted murder for pointing a gun at a teacher.

Luke Andrews was 12 years old when prosecutors say he pointed the loaded gun at a middle school teacher in North Scott last August.

He pulled the trigger but the gun did not fire because the safety was on.

In the first day of testimony, a guidance counselor described trying to wrestle the gun away from Andrews.
