Court rejects appeal in Bremerton school shooting case

The Associated Press

TACOMA – A district Court of Appeals has ruled that Kitsap County’s prosecution of a man accused of providing access to the gun used in last year’s shooting at Armin Jahr Elementary School can continue.

The Kitsap Sun reports that Douglas Bauer will appeal that ruling with the state Supreme Court.

Bauer is charged with third-degree assault in connection with the accidental shooting of student Amina Kocer-Bowman. A 9-year-old boy, the son of Bauer’s then-girlfriend, brought the loaded gun to school in his backpack. The gun fired as he was reaching into the backpack, critically injuring Kocer-Bowman.

The boy told investigators he had taken the gun off a dresser at Bauer’s Allyn home. He said there were other unsecured firearms in the house, a statement police confirmed in a search of Bauer’s home after the shooting.
