TACOMA, Wash. —

A district Court of Appeals has ruled that Kitsap County's prosecution of a man accused of providing access to the gun used in last year's shooting at Armin Jahr Elementary School can continue.

The Kitsap Sun reports (http://is.gd/2Hxz1R) that Douglas Bauer will appeal that ruling with the state Supreme Court.

Bauer is charged with third-degree assault in connection with the accidental shooting of student Amina Kocer-Bowman. A 9-year-old boy, the son of Bauer's then-girlfriend, brought the loaded gun to school in his backpack. The gun fired as he was reaching into the backpack, critically injuring Kocer-Bowman.

The boy told investigators he had taken the gun off a dresser at Bauer's Allyn home. He said there were other unsecured firearms in the house, a statement police confirmed in a search of Bauer's home after the shooting.
