Hearing in Colorado school shooting case postponed

A preliminary hearing for a man accused of shooting two students at a Colorado middle school has been postponed to give defense attorneys more time to review evidence.

Public defenders for Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood said Tuesday they were reviewing 2,000 documents, including copies of his journals. A new hearing date was scheduled April 28.

Eastwood is accused of opening fire Feb. 23 outside Deer Creek Middle School, not far from the site of the deadly 1999 shootings at Columbine High School. Two students were wounded before teachers tackled Eastwood.

Tuesday's hearing was to consider whether there is enough evidence against Eastwood for the case to proceed. Eastwood is being held on $1 million bail.
