A 16-year-old student who was teased by his California high school classmates for his red hair, social awkwardness and bookish appearance will be tried as an adult for allegedly wounding a classmate with a shotgun and trying to target another.

Bryan Oliver pleaded not guilty Monday in Kern County Superior Court to two counts of premeditated attempted murder and three counts of assault with a firearm in the attack Thursday at Taft Union High School that left a 16-year-old wounded.

Defense attorney David Torres said in court that Oliver did not waive his right to change his plea in the future.

The potential penalty for just one count of premeditated attempted murder with a firearm is 32 years to life.

Students who know the teens said Oliver had been bullied.
