At least two students were injured and the suspect is dead after a shooting at a Centennial, Colo. high school on Friday afternoon.

The shooter reportedly was targeting a specific teacher, police say, and asked for the teacher by name. The teacher fled, cops say.

 

“We are slowly and methodically clearing the school to make sure the students are safe,” Sheriff Grayson Robinson told the media around 3:45 p.m.  Each student is being frisked as they exit the school.

 

“No weapons were found other than the one that was used in the shooting,” a shotgun, Robinson said.

 

The wounded student is reportedly 15 or 16-years-old and was shot in the head. Cops have identified the shooter but have not released his name.

“From what I have heard they have one of the shooters down (not sure how many are involved), kids are being released but there are still kids on lock down in the school,” Kelsie Lambeth, a school alum whose sibling attend the school, tells the Daily News. “Police and other first responders are there.

 

“My little brother is still in the school, my sister is safe, and my dad is acting as a first responder.”

The school shooting comes one day before the one year anniversary of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The school is about 8 miles from Columbine High School where two students killed 13 people and themselves in 1999. It’s about 20 miles from Aurora, Colo., where a gunman opened fire on movie-goers, killing 12 and injuring dozens.

 

Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio was at a meeting with President Obama when they got word of the Colorado shooting. “We all cringed,” de Blasio said.

You think this lone gunman and his attack on schoolmates one day before The Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre is a coincidence?

 

Yeah, me either.

 

This is the 28th school shooting this year….thats TWENTY EIGHTH.

 

Guns don’t kill people….a Congress scared to enact comprehensive gun reform does kill people.

  5. Even if no one was injured and no one died the trauma facing the community, especially the children is a life-long memory. Gun Control is a minimal solution at least. Humanity? Time to grow up and together instead of down and separated.
