School shooting: One student dead, 8 wounded in Highlands Ranch
Updated at 05:20AM, May 8, 2019



HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. -- Two high school students shot and killed a classmate and wounded eight others at a charter school in Highlands Ranch on Tuesday afternoon, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.

Officials said and 18-year-old and a younger student walked into the STEM School Highlands Ranch and opened fire in two classrooms, prompting students to run shouting through the halls or to hide out of sight as gunfire echoed through school.

"At the moment no one really knew what was going on so I didn't know they were bullets," seventh-grader Sophia Marks said. "I just kind of saw like flashes and we heard bangs."

Within minutes, deputies at a nearby sheriff's office substation entered the school and arrested the two suspects after a struggle.

Both were students at the school and they were not previously known to authorities, Sheriff Tony Spurlock said.

Josh Dutton, 18, said he was close friends with the 18-year-old suspect in middle school but hadn't seen him for four years as he went to a different high school.

On Sunday, he spotted the 18-year-old at a light rail station and said he was shocked at how much his friend had changed.

He wore all black, a hat and sunglasses, was significantly skinnier and didn't seem interested in talking.

"He said he'd just turned 18 and he owned rifles," Dutton said.

A message left at a phone number listed for the suspect's home was not immediately returned.

The second suspect was not named, but The Denver Channel wrote that multiple sources say “the second suspect, who is a minor, is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.” The motive, the station alleges, “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school,” adding that one suspect “was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.”


On social media, Devon Erickson, a registered Democrat, expressed hatred for some Christians, and shared posts criticizing Donald Trump and praising Barack Obama, which you can see later in this article.

“You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that,” he wrote in one Facebook post a couple years ago. “But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.'” In 2015, Erickson put a celebrate pride filter onto a Facebook picture.
