Funeral held Saturday for Nebraska school gunman

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Friends of the 17-year-old who shot and killed an assistant principal and wounded the principal at a Nebraska high school before killing himself say that they are beginning to identify signs of unrest as they look back.

The friends say it's now clear that Robert Butler Jr. was troubled because he was involved in fights, had behavior problems and seemed unhappy.

Still, those behaviors may not have predicted the Wednesday shooting that killed assistant principal Vicki Kaspar and injured principal Curtis Case at Millard South High School in west Omaha.

Butler's funeral is scheduled for Saturday morning in Lincoln, where he grew up. He transferred to the Omaha school in the fall.

Butler's relatives have said they were shocked and confused by the shootings.
