I don't give a flying fuck if he's a kid or an adult. The little shit shot two people and admitted to it. 8-year olds are old enough to know not to shoot people.
I don't see what "admiting to it" or not has to do with your argument. You'd be more likely to try him as a child if he lied or didn't know what he'd done? I think the fact that he knew what he was doing makes it that much more clear that he needs psychiatric help.
