Kendrick Castillo, 18, died. He died at the school.

Police confirm 2 suspects are in custody and they're searching for a possible third suspect.

On May 7, officials identified the juvenile suspect, who has not been named, believing she was a boy at first.

The STEM School Highlands Ranch is located just seven miles from Columbine High School where 12 students and a teacher were shot dead 20 years ago on April 20, 1999.

In 1999, two students killed 13 people at Columbine High School before committing suicide in what remains one of the deadliest school shootings in USA history.

"He told me he wanted to be a Knights of Columbus because he wanted to help not only people, but his community", Bedard said.

"Who were are is, we are a kind, compassionate, caring people", Brauchler said, "and this does not define us". "My kids are going to go to school today", he said, acknowledging the conversations anxious parents are having.

Kendrick Castillo, 18, was identified by his family as the student killed in the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch, the New York Post reported.

"Not only have we run drills but our own experience with three school shootings and also the Douglas County deputy event, I'm afraid, makes us prepared, but you never get used to it", Elliott said.

The shooting took place exactly a week after a gunman killed two students and wounded four at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

Trump says Robert Mueller shouldn't testify before Congress
According to CNN , Harris said in the letter that, "Such inappropriate requests by the President have been well documented". Trump also incorrectly tweeted on Sunday that the report showed "no obstruction". "We must hear from Director Mueller".

The shooters were able to walk in through a middle-school entrance that does not have a metal detector and get deep inside the school, Spurlock said.

"As officers were arriving at the school, they could still hear gunshots", Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said.

The two attackers opened fire in two separate classrooms and were arrested within minutes at the public charter school about 40 kilometres south of Denver, Spurlock said. They have contacted the family, he said. The two didn't appear to be on law enforcement's radar, Spurlock said.

Fernando Montoya told a local news station that his 17-year-old son was shot three times.

Authorities engaged in a struggle while arresting the suspects, but neither were injured.

"We originally thought the juvenile was a male by appearance", Spurlock said.

Two suspects were in custody - an adult man and a male youth.

Malone said he likely would not bring up the shooting with his team before the game.

Security measures were taken at several area schools and parents of STEM students were asked to pick up their children at a site near the school.

"It is with unspeakable grief and shocking disbelief that we share this message with our school community", the statement said. "Together, we will get through this hard time". That person is not expected to be charged Wednesday, authorities said.
