Colorado School Shooter Targeted Teacher

Posted: Updated:


The "all clear" has been given at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado, where a male shooter opened fire.  Students gathered on the track outside the school after being evacuated.

Sheriff Grayson Robinson told reporters the suspect is dead from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  He also says the shooter was a male student who attended the school, and it appears he was searching for a specific teacher.

"We have not been able to locate a second suspect, but that's part of our ongoing investigation," the sheriff said.

The shooting began after the student entered the school and identified a teacher whom he wanted to confront, Robinson said. That teacher was informed of the situation and exited, he added. One student was taken to a hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound; another was injured, though the cause was not clear, he said.


At least two people are believed to have been injured after an active shooter situation at a Colorado school. According to CNN, Sheriff Grayson Robinson told reporters the suspect is dead of what appears to have been a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Arapahoe High School is located in Centennial, Colorado, which is about ten miles south of Denver. Emergency personnel are advising parents to go to King Soopers, a grocery store in the vicinity of the school, to pick up their children.

The high school, with a student population of 2,229 students, has 70 classrooms. The school, which was built in 1964, is part of the Littleton Public Schools system.

All schools in the area have been put on lock down.
