Students walk out of vigil for Colorado school shooting victims

Two students open fire at Colorado school killing one wounding eightMore

One student was killed and eight injured when two classmates opened fire with handguns at the school on Tuesday.

His 16-year-old accused accomplice, referred to in court by his lawyer as Alec McKinney, was listed on the court docket by the name Maya Elizabeth McKinney but was addressed by the judge during the hearing as Mr McKinney.

The vigil in the gym of the school was one of several held to honor victims of the shooting, including an 18-year-old student who was killed when two gunmen were reported to have opened fire at the school on May 7.

Vikki Migoya, a spokeswoman for District Attorney George Brauchler, did not explain the reason for the delay.

According to Denver 7, city law enforcement sources, Erickson's parents had purchased the guns legally. Colorado law permits prosecutors to file adult charges of serious felonies against 16- and 17-year-olds without prior approval from a judge. According to a student at STEM School Highlands Ranch, Erickson, who was a senior at the time of the shooting, "always joked" about mass shootings.

School authorities informed the police as soon as the incident unfolded, and students were immediately evacuated to a safer area. It's a lesson that not all school shooting survivors are willing to quickly turn their grief into demands for gun control and political change like many students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Me and Brendan grabbed him and threw him to the ground. The officer split his time between the two schools. "I want the world to know that he was a gift", Kendrick's father said.

A Douglas County, Colo., Sheriff's Department deputy walks past the doors to the STEM Highlands Ranch school early Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Highlands Ranch, Colo. The students said they just wanted to talk about their classmates.

Brauchler is considering charging McKinney as an adult, he said.

The attack occurred less than a month after the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre in nearby Littleton, in which two students shot 13 people to death before committing suicide.

An anonymous person who said she was the parent of a student at the school called the school district in December to make a number of complaints about the school, including that there was a lot of drug dealing and use and that there was student violence because of the high-pressure environment there. Both men made comments interpreted by students, community members, and survivors of the shooting to be inappropriately political.

"We also request placement of a new SRO for the 2018-19 school year and participation in his or her selection process", Eucker wrote in an email to the sheriff's office and Bronner on May 18, 2018.
