Security guard ordered to stand trial for shooting at Carlsbad elementary school
O'Rourke allegedly climbed the fence at Kelly Elementary School on Oct. 8 and began babbling incoherently as he fired a .357 magnum handgun. As he attempted to reload, he was tackled by construction workers who held him down until police arrived.
O'Rourke was found to have matches and a gas can, according to police.
He faces seven felony counts that could lead to a life sentence. He was ordered to stand trial by San Diego County Superior Court Judge K. Michael Kirkman after a preliminary hearing at which several students testified, including the two who were wounded.
O'Rourke remains in jail on $10-million bail. No motive has been alleged and no evidence has suggested a link between O'Rourke and the school.
