Hearing in Colorado school shooting delayed

15 May 2019

After several meetings between officials from STEM and the sheriff's office, Eucker opted to contract with a private security company for the 2018-19 school year and requested a deputy from the sheriff's office for up to three hours a day to assist with traffic.

As media reports about the complaint surfaced on Thursday, putting the school's culture under increasing focus, administrators strongly denied the allegations.

But the attorney, Robert Burk, said his client acted in the best interests of protecting the children at the school and helped resolve the situation without further bloodshed.

Jared Polis wrote on Twitter that Castillo, 18, lunged toward one of the two gunman to "prevent an even worse tragedy", during the shooting at the K-12 STEM School located about 12 miles south of Denver.

According to police, one of the shooters was 18-year-old Devon Erickson, and the other was a younger student. "He doesn't even realize how many lives he saved by stopping a school shooting", says Whitus, a former SWAT team leader who responded to the 1999 Columbine massacre.

He said the guard has not been interviewed since.

Kendrick's friends say he was friendly, had an infectious smile and gentle sense of humor.

The attack unfolded almost three weeks after neighboring Littleton marked the 20th anniversary of the Columbine attack that killed 13 people. Investigators have offered no motive and refused to discuss how the students obtained the weapons.

The two teenage suspects in the deadly mass shooting at a Colorado charter school will appear in court Friday afternoon to hear the charges against them.

The school, represented by conservative lawyer Barry Arrington, sued the anonymous caller for defamation on January 17, Colorado Public Radio (CPR) reported.

Other claims included money being sent to Mexico and China, students having to clean off feces from school walls with their bare hands and a teacher hitting a student.

The letter was written by a school district official with information from an anonymous parent of a high school senior, who called the district with concerns about the school. But the lawsuit does not mention specifically mention anything about a shooting. Both men made comments interpreted by students, community members, and survivors of the shooting to be inappropriately political.

Once lawmakers took the stage to politicize the shooting by promoting gun control, students walked out in protest. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., and Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., spoke.

Spurlock declined to identify any of the students by name but said they were all aged 15 or older. "Their job is not to give up their own life...to save their classmates' lives". Students eventually were invited to speak. Only time will tell what else we're likely to learn.
