On Dec. 13 ABC News reports that the shooter in the Arapahoe High School shooting is dead. It appears that he committed suicide after injuring two other students.
It is being said that one of the students wounded is in serious condition while the other is only being treated for minor injuries. The suspect was found inside the school, died by a self inflicted gunshot wound. Police claim that they know the identity of the shooter but they are withholding all information until officials are conducted with the family of the student. It is unconfirmed yet, but students that have spoken with press claim that another student confronted the shooter and he shot himself.
The school was put in lockdown quickly and teachers were ordered to lock the doors tightly and dim the lights. Some are attributing this to the reason that only two were injured. The shooting took place in the study hall area of the school, that is where paramedics removed people from.
Many are finding this shooting most disturbing not only because today is Friday the 13th, but it is also only a few short miles away from Columbine High School where the fateful shooting where 15 students were lost and many more were injured. It is also only a little over a year since the Newtown shooting in Connecticut that took place last year.
Police say that students did a fine job of keeping calm while evacuating, but most all of them ran once they were outside the doors of the building.
More information will come available as this story progresses.
