Sheriff says shots fired at school in suburban Denver

Sheriff says shots fired at school in suburban Denver

A ranking law enforcement source told Scripps affiliate KMGH-TV that at least one victim was shot and that one suspect was down.

A lockdown was put in place at the STEM school, while "all other Highlands Ranch schools are on lockout", the Douglas County School District tweeted.

Seven students, and possibly an eighth, were taken to a hospital with injuries, said Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth.

Additional information was not immediately available.

Ms Nicholson-Kluth said police and deputies got there nearly immediately and heard shots as they arrived.

While authorities no longer believe there is a third suspect in the shooting, officers are still searching as they clear the campus.

FBI and ATF agents were also responding to the school, federal investigators confirmed. "We still don't know whether there is still an active shooter inside", she said.

Deputies are clearing the school, which has about 1,850 students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, room by room, she said.

Some students had fled the school themselves and sheriffs were working to reunite them with their parents. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting and the White House is monitoring the situation.
