UPDATE 4:30 PM:

The teen accused of opening fire at Harrisburg High School nearly two years ago has pled guilty to attempted murder.

Mason Buhl appeared in Lincoln County Court in Canton Wednesday afternoon where he will be sentenced.

This is a developing story.

ORIGINAL STORY:

The teen accused of opening fire at a Harrisburg school nearly two years ago is set to appear in court Wednesday.

Mason Buhl will face a motion to transfer hearing, according to Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman.

Wollman says Buhl's lawyer has filed a request to move his case to juvenile court. The court is expected to make a decision on that request Wednesday.

Buhl has been charged on one count each of attempted murder and the commission of a felony while armed with a firearm for the September 2015 incident.

Authorities said Buhl, who was 16 at the time, brought a gun to school and shot principal Kevin Lein in the arm. Buhl was tackled and restrained by two other Harrisburg High School staff members.
