A shooting Tuesday afternoon at STEM School Highlands Ranch in Colorado left at least seven people injured and at least two suspects were in custody, the sheriff’s office said.
It’s possible that a third suspect remains in STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is still being searched, Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said at a news conference. Some students remained inside and authorities were working to evacuate the elementary school.
Authorities urged the public to avoid the area. Multiple units from the South Metro Fire Rescue reported to the scene to help, the agency said on Twitter. The Denver office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) also tweeted that they were responding.
