One Student Dead And Several Injured After School Shooting In America
An 18-year-old student has died and several others are in hospital after two other students shot up their school in Colorado.
The two alleged shooters have been taken into custody.
The DC Sheriff said in a statement: "It is with extreme sadness that we can confirm that 1 student at the STEM School was killed in today's #STEMshooting incident.
"The immediate family has been notified. Douglas County Coroner Jill Romann has not officially identified the student is stating it's an 18 year old male."
The STEM School Highlands Ranch has more than 1,800 students ranging from Kindergarten to Year 12.
A man called a local radio station to explain that the alleged shooters burst into his son's classroom and opened fire. He said some of the students tried to tackle the gunmen and disarm them.
Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said: "There did seem to be some struggle going on when they got there; we don't know if that was students or security or officers."
More to come.
