Morning Memo/Tuesday: Boy, 13, shot by homeowner… firebomb plea

Weather: A 40 percent chance of rain today and then just cloudy skies. The high temp is expected to be around 47.  Tomorrow, though, we’ll start out with cloudy skies and then it’s expected to gradually become sunny. We like sun. Partly sunny Thursday, too. But then a 50 percent chance of rain Friday… At least it’s not freezing out there. The details.

Boy, 13, shot by homeowner in attempted burglary: The Spokesman Review has a story this morning about a Medical Lake homeowner who reportedly found two young teens  breaking into a room under the home’s deck. An alarm alerted the homeowner to the attempted burglary. One of the boys was shot. The boys were carrying baseball bats. Just what happened isn’t clear as yet.

The man accused of building the firebomb used by Earth Liberation Front radicals to torch the University of Washington’s Center for Urban Horticulture in 2001 is expected to plead guilty in a plea deal during an appearance this morning in U.S. District Court in Tacoma. Justin Solondz, 31, was arrested July 6 in Chicago after his expulsion from China, where he had been serving a prison term for selling drugs. We’ll keep you posted on developments.
