Monday’s judge appointed a former Kansas attorney General to represent an 18 year old high school football player. He is being charged with a shooting in which a school administrator and school resource officer were both wounded at a suburban Kansas City school.

Jaylon DeseanElmore was arrestedSaturday for attempted capital murder in Friday’sshootings at Olathe East High School. This charge carries a life sentence in prison with no parole possibility for 25 years.

Johnson County Judge Dan Vokins stated that Morrison will be his attorney during a Zoom hearing. The Associated Press did not immediately return a call from Morrison, who was also the county’s ex-district attorney. A sex scandal forced Morrison to resign from his position as attorney general in January 2008.

Officials said that Elmore was injured when the school resource officer opened fire on him. He was not able to attend the hearing as he is still in hospital. A spokeswoman from Overland Park Regional Medical Center stated Monday that Elmore’s condition was critical.

Friday saw the release of Erik Clark, the school resource officer, and Kaleb SToppel, the school’s athletic director, and assistant principal.

The motive behind the shooting was not released by law enforcement and the probable cause statement wasn’t immediately available.

Cindy Holscher, Kansas Senator, said that her son Elmore, who plays football at Olathe East described her son as well-liked and a “nice man”. She also said that Elmore saw her the morning of the shooting, and she didn’t notice anything unusual.

She said, “It feels very tragical and very sad.” “And you know what? It didn’t get worse,” she said.

Elmore’s bond is set at $1million. He has been convicted of aggravated robbery. His next appearance is scheduled for March 17.
