BREMERTON, Wash. —

The Kitsap County prosecutor says his office will seek probation and treatment for the 9-year-old boy who brought the gun that ended up discharging and injuring a classmate at a Bremerton elementary school this past week.

Prosecutor Russ Haugen told the Kitsap Sun ( http://bit.ly/xxO2q5) Friday that "nobody is trying to lock this little boy up."

The third-grader has been charged in the case. He is facing a capacity hearing in which a judge will determine if the boy knew what he did was wrong. If the judge decides the boy knew, the charges go forward.

An 8-year-old classmate - Amina Kocer-Bowman - was wounded. She is in a Seattle hospital in critical condition after undergoing surgeries.
