Today, on a Friday the 13th, only one day before the anniversary of Sandy Hook, and just 8 miles away from Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, where Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 classmates and a teacher during a shooting rampage on April 20, 1999 before killing themselves, there has been yet another school shooting.
The shooting took place at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado only hours ago, and is not far from Aurora, Colorado, where James Eagan Holmes opened fire in a crowded movie theater on July 20, 2012, during a midnight screening of the film The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and injuring 70 others.
At least two people were injured in a shooting at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colo. on Friday.
One student was critically injured, according to KDVR. The second student suffered minor injuries, but police have not confirmed whether or not the injuries were from gunfire.
At a 1:45 p.m. press conference, County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the suspect, who was a student, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Robinson said the shooter “targeted a specific teacher that he was interested in confronting.” That teacher was not injured.
The suspect, a student, reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
There will be flurry of news about this amidst, undoubtedly preliminary accounts and perhaps some speculation, a thorough investigation including psychological profiling of the deceased shooter.
