The student gunman who injured two at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colo. is dead, according to a Dec. 13 report by 7 News. The death has been confirmed by Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

It was previously reported that two were injured during the school shooting. Both were students and while one has only minor injuries, the other is in serious condition. It is believed that the gunman died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Hundreds of students were evacuated, but some didn't make it out during the school shooting. Those students that were still inside during the shooting are now being evacuated. Emergency vehicles and police were parked at the shopping center across the street, but employees of the stores were not sure what was happening at Arapahoe High School except the fact that there were gunshots fired.

Parents of Arapahoe High School students have been instructed to go to Shepherd of the Hills Church on University Blvd.

Littleton, Aurora and Elizabeth schools were on lockdown and Cherry Creek schools had their outside doors locked. Douglas County schools were on increased alert with all their doors locked. Visitors had to show ID in order to get in, but dismissal times remained the same with increased patrols.
