WASHINGTON- Three students are injured, one is in a critical condition, after a shooter, who was a student him self, went through Arapahoe High School in Colorado, searching for a single teacher, who later left the school.
The local Sheriff office has confirmed that two people have been injured. Later reports state that two injured were in fact students. Authorities have not reported any capture until now, and emergency and security vehicles are surrounding the school.
The Arapahoe High school listed at least 2100 students enrolled.
All the other schools in the area have been locked down.
The school is located on the same road as the Aurora theatre, where James Eagan Holmes killed 12 people and injured more than 60 during a late screening of the movie “The dark Night Rises” in 2012.
