BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy accused of shooting a classmate at a California high school wrote a story posted online about a bullied student who kills his former tormentors as an adult.

The Bakersfield Californian reports (http://bit.ly/13EYfwP) that investigators found the story written by 16-year-old Bryan Oliver that describes the killing of several people by torture and other morbid means.

Oliver has been charged as an adult in a shooting at Taft Union High School in January that left two people injured.

He pleaded not guilty to two counts of premeditated attempted murder and three counts of assault with a firearm.

Friends of Oliver say he was teased by his classmates for his red hair and social awkwardness.
