Two suspects are being held in custody after a school shooting in Denver, Colorado at the STEM School Highlands Ranch. The shooting took place around 2 P.M. on May 7 of this year.

The shooting left eight students injured. According to the sheriff, many students who were injured and currently in critical condition.

The suspects currently in custody are most likely students who attended the school at some point. Both suspects are male, one being an adult and the other being a minor. Their vehicle was found outside of the school.

The school, which is seven miles away from Columbine High School, was on lockdown for several hours during and immediately after the situation. Surrounding high schools in the district were put on lockout.

According to Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth, “as officers were arriving at the school they could still hear gunshots.”

The White House also released a statement regarding the shooting, referencing the recent twentieth anniversary of the Columbine high school shooting.

“Tragically, this community and those surrounding it know all too well these hateful and horrible acts of violence,” the White House said.
