A school shooting has been reported in the Denver area. From initial media reports — and they frequently turn out to be incorrect — the shooting is reminiscent of the Columbine shooting which took place twenty years ago.
At least seven, possibly eight victims were injured Tuesday in a shooting at a school in suburban Denver, authorities said.
Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said two suspects are in custody in the shooting at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, which covers K-12.“We have multiple students that have been injured,” she said.
Authorities say at least seven people have been injured in a shooting at a suburban Denver school.
Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said Tuesday that two suspects have been taken into custody in the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch.
She says there’s a possible eighth injury and doesn’t believe there are any other shooters, but tactical teams are still searching room by room.
Nicholson-Kluth didn’t know if there are fatalities or other details about the victims or the extent of their injuries.
She said the shooting started in the middle school area and shots were being fired as officers arrived.
The school is near a sheriff’s department substation, and authorities responded quickly. Students were being bused to a nearby recreational center to reunite with their families.
