NORMAL - The teen charged in the 2012 shooting at Nrmal Community High School is no longer behind bars.

The McLean county state's attorney confirms, the boy was released from a state juvenile facility in early April. At the time authorities said the teen didn't have a FOID card and wasn't old enough to legally possess a firearm. Prosecutors said the then 14-year-old brought multiple guns, knives, matches and kerosene into his first hour health classroom in his backpack and opened fire. No one was injured in the incident.
