Prosecutors say a 13-year-old boy made a video warning of violence the day before he allegedly shot and wounded a classmate and a teacher at their suburban Indianapolis school.

Prosecutors said during a juvenile court hearing Monday that the boy filmed the video in his family's basement showing a .45-caliber handgun and a .22-caliber handgun with a silencer.

The Associated Press isn't using the boy's name because he is charged as a juvenile.

The Indianapolis Star reports that prosecutors said the boy pronounced in the video: "Tomorrow's Friday, you know what that means. I have to take other people's lives before I take my own."

The teen is accused of shooting teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old classmate Ella Whistler on May 25 at Noblesville West Middle School, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.

A 13-year-old boy accused of shooting a classmate and a teacher at their suburban Indianapolis school is due in court for a hearing where he's expected to admit to carrying out the attack.

The teen is scheduled to appear in juvenile court Monday for an admission/uncontested fact-finding hearing and a disposition hearing.

A Hamilton County judge issued an order Sept. 5 setting those juvenile versions of what in adult court would be plea and sentencing hearings.

The boy is accused of shooting teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old classmate Ella Whistler on May 25 at Noblesville West Middle School, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Indianapolis. Both survived.

Authorities say Seaman stopped the attack by tackling the boy.

The Associated Press isn't using the boy's name because he's charged as a juvenile.
