Sheriff says shots fired at school in suburban Denver

Authorities said "multiple students" were injured Tuesday in a shooting at a school in suburban Denver.

The sheriff said a school resource officer and other officers responded to a call of shots fired at 1:53 p.m.

The Denver-area NBC affiliate is reporting that deputies are also looking for a possible third suspect.

The school's website says that about 1,800 students attend the school and that it is a K-12 school.

Nicholson-Kluth said authorities don't know at this point if the suspected shooters were students.


Officials confirmed to CBS Denver that STEM School Highlands Ranch is on lockdown and other schools in Highlands Ranch are on lockdown.

The sheriff's office directed parents to a nearby recreational center to pick up their children.
