A male student shot two school staff members at a high school in Denver, the city’s mayor said, and the victims were taken to area hospitals. Denver Public Schools confirmed that the two victims are faculty members at East High School, not students.
Denver Police Chief Ron Thomas said the student was undergoing a search and “a handgun was retrieved and several shots were fired.” The student was not identified but is know to authorities, he said.
One victim was in critical condition and one was in serious but stable condition, Thomas said.
A suspect was no longer believed to be at the school, police said on Twitter.
