The kid is a danger to society. At best, he will be kept in Juvenile Detention until he is 18, learning from other delinquents. Then he will be unleashed upon society so that he may continue to do bad things.
Bored doesn't qualify as an excuse. By the time you are 15 you know the difference between right and wrong or you should anyways. I agree try him as an adult, sorry but stupidity and boredom is not a valid excuse for an act that could have killed someone.

Put him - and his parents - in a house with a sniper outside taking potshots through the windows and let him sit in there are find out what its like to experience what he did.
He won't do it again.

Ha! Very good!! A very innocuous sideway into gun control! .. See what you did there!
Don't give children access to guns, hold gun owners responsible for their actions. Don't matter if it's a '22 or a 357. Otherwise change the law. Job done.
