A shooting Tuesday afternoon at a school in Colorado left at least seven people injured and at least two suspects were in custody, the sheriff’s office said, warning that it was still an “active shooter situation.”
It’s possible that a third suspect remains in STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is still being searched, Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said at a news conference. Some students remained inside and authorities were working to evacuate the elementary school, Nicholson-Kluth said.
Authorities responded at 1:53 p.m. local time to a “call of shots fired in school,” the sheriff’s office tweeted. They later added that “7 possibly 8 students have been injured.” Those who were hurt were taken to a local hospital, Nicholson-Kluth said.
Multiple units from the South Metro Fire Rescue reported to the scene to help, the agency said on Twitter. The Denver office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) also tweeted that they were responding.
