Older of two students arrested in Colorado shooting held on murder charge

Sheriff says shooting at school in suburban Denver has injured 2

Shots were fired, and deputies struggled with the suspects before taking them into custody, he said.

The Associated Press reported that two handguns were used in the shooting, but Spurlock noted that the suspects had a "number of weapons", without elaborating.

Mr. Spurlock said the suspects were armed and unhurt.

Five hours after the shooting had ended, at approximately 6.45pm local time (12.15am GMT), it was confirmed that one of the victims, an 18-year-old male, had died from his injuries.

"When we were exiting the building there was a trail of blood", said an unnamed student.

When tragedy struck at a suburban Colorado high school, a quick-thinking student, Kendrick Castillo, bravely tried to step in and save his fellow classmates.

Student Nui Giasolli told NBC's Today show that she was in her British literature class when one of the shooters entered and pulled out a gun.

Almost 2,000 students were inside the charter school at the time. The school is near a sheriff's department substation and authorities responded quickly and in force to the shooting.

"The (STEM) school is literally two minutes away from where I live, right down Broadway in Highlands Ranch", Malone said ahead of Game 5 against the Portland Trail Blazers, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. The adult suspect was named late Tuesday as Devon Erickson, 18.

"For it not to be safe in a kid's school is tragic", Nuggets guard Jamal Murray said after Tuesday's game.

Taami Bash was texting her daughter during the attack, finding out it wasn't just a drill.

Students and teachers raise their hands as the exit the scene of a shooting at the STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7, 2019 in Highlands Ranch, Colo. However, one of the heroic teens died during the confrontation.

STEM is a public charter school with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math.

Police officers with rifles stood by a group of high schoolers huddled behind dumpsters, many of them typing on their phones.

"Who we are is a kind, compassionate, caring people, and this does not define us".

Colorado Governor Jared Polis said he would send extra police officers to the scene while the White House also tweeted its condolences to the victims.

Parents of students at the STEM School have been told to go to the Northridge Rec Center to pick up their child.

He urged students and others to use local or state tip lines to contact authorities if they notice anything that might indicate a violent threat, to help prevent similar attacks in the future.

The worst shootings to date were those at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut in 2012 (20 young children and six adults were killed) and at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida a year ago (17 dead).
