Sheriff: Shooter dead in Colorado school shooting

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — A suburban Denver student shot at least one other student at a high school Friday before he apparently killed himself, authorities said.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the shooter entered Arapahoe High School in Centennial armed with a shotgun looking for a teacher he identified by name.

"The teacher began to understand that he was being looked at and exited the school. One student confronted the armed student and was shot," Robinson said.

The critically injured student was in surgery at a nearby hospital, said Jason Dunkel, spokesman for Littleton Adventist Hospital.

A third student was injured at the school, but it wasn't clear whether that student was shot.

Police were outside the school, and students were seen walking toward the school's running track with their hands in the air. Television footage showed students being patted down.

The school is about 8 miles east of Columbine High School in Littleton, where two teenage shooters killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves in 1999.

The shooting also came a day before the first anniversary of the school massacre in Newtown, where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
