Lawyer seeks to seal evidence in Freeman High shooting case

The lawyer for the teen accused of shooting four students at Freeman High School south of Spokane last year is asking a judge to seal pieces of evidence from the public.

The defense for Caleb Sharpe filed a motion in Spokane County Superior Court last month arguing that Sharpe’s videotaped statement to police, the interview transcript, surveillance video, and photographs are sensational and don’t offer valuable information to the public. The defense writes that the items need to be sealed to protect Sharpe’s right to a fair trial.

Sharpe is accused of opening fire down a second-floor hallway at Freeman High in September 2017, killing a classmate and wounding three other students. He is charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, and 51 counts of second-degree assault. (AP)
