At least seven people were injured and two suspects were in custody after a shooting was reported at a Colorado STEM school, officials said.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said it responded to the STEM School Highlands Ranch just before 2 p.m. and are also looking into the possibility there is a third suspect involved and as many as eight people injured.
The shooting occurred in the middle school and officers heard shots as they were entering the school, said Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth.
Nicholson-Kluth told reporters that the situation was still active.
Multiple agencies, including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to the scene to assist.
The school district said Tuesday that the public charter school was under lockdown and all other Highlands Ranch schools are on lockout.
STEM School Highlands Ranch has 1,850 students — 550 elementary age students, 700 in middle school and 600 high school students, according to the district.
