Shooting suspects stole guns, van
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The
grandfather of the I11-year-old charged
in a deadly school yard ambush said
yesterday the boy admitted to stealing
seven guns from him and pulling the
fire alarm that forced the victims into
the line of fire.
But his grandson did not confess to
killing four classmates and a teacher,
saying he couldn't recall what hap-
pened, Doug Golden told The
Associated Press yesterday.
"He told me he fired some shots;"
said Golden, who talked to his grand-
son, Andrew Golden, with police in jail
after Tuesday's shooting.
"He said he shot at a car on the park-
ing lot but 'I don't remember anything
after that,"'said Golden, the manager of
a wildlife area.
A Juvenile Court judge on yesterday
ordered Andrew and his allegediaccom-
plice, 13-year-old Mitchell Johnson, held
until an April 29 hearing. The two are
charged with five counts of murder and 10
counts ofbattery. They did not enter a plea.
After he heard about the shootings at
Westside Middle School, Doug Golden
drove from hospital to hospital fearing
Andrew might be among the wounded.
Instead, he was directed to the sheriff's
"After we got out to the jail and
found him, they brought the guns in and
I recognized them," he said.
Golden said the boy then admitted
stealing three rifles, four handguns and
several boxes of ammunition from his
His grandson had his own weapons,
Golden said, including a shotgun, two
rifles, a crossbow and a bow, but didn't
know the combination to the steel vault
at his house where they were kept, so he
and Mitchell tried breaking in.
"We were told the other boy brought
a torch and hammer and some other
tools to try to break into the gun vault
and they couldn't do it," he said.
So the two broke into his house and
took the rifles from a gunrack and
found pistols that were hid "all over the
house," Golden said.
The boys, who had skipped school
Tuesday, also took a white van from
Mitchell's house and parked it near the
school, Golden said. Police said the
boys shot from a wooded hill at the rear
of the school.
Golden said the guns taken from his
house were a 30.06 rifle and a .44-caliber
Magnum with scopes and a World War II
vintage .33-caliber carbine. Also stolen
were a pair of small semiautomatic pis-
tols, a .38-caliber Smith and Wesson
revolver and a .22-caliber Magnum two-
barrel Derringer that didn't work.
Police say they recovered a 30.06
rifle and a .44-caliber rifle after tackling
the boys - dressed head-to-toe in cam-
ouflage - as they ran away from the
school toward the van.

Employers can be liable for harassment
WASHINGTON -The Supreme Court indicated yesterday that it wants to hold
employers responsible for a supervisor's sexual harassment of workers, but that
management should not be automatically liable in every case.
During a hearing on a test case involving a Florida lifeguard who sued after
being subjected to crude sexual advances by two of her superiors on the beach, the
justices became mired in complexity about how to write a standard of legal blame
"This is like running around Robin Hood's barn," Chief Justice William
Rehnquist protested as a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., lawyer for the ex-lifeguard offered
the court little help in clarifying employers' legal responsibility.
"We're looking for something simple and easy to apply" Rehnquist added. But at
the end of the hearing - and one immediately afterward, exploring sexual harass-
ment of students by teachers - the justices seemed no closer to a simple legal stan-
dard for employer responsibility either in the workplace or the school setting.
The former lifeguard involved in the first case, Beth Ann Faragher, is now a
lawyer in Denver. Yesterday, before the court began hearing her lawyer argue the
case, Faragher was sworn in as a member of the court's bar. She leaned forward fre-
quently to catch the fast-paced exchanges between the justices in her case and in
the school dispute that followed.
