Columbine students allowed to leave school after lockdown

Columbine students allowed to leave school after lockdown

All schools in the Denver area were urged to tighten security because the threat was deemed "credible and general", said Patricia Billinger, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Safety.

The 18-year-old who is allegedly obsessed with Columbine, traveled there Monday night and made the threat. The sheet also says, "If contacted detain and evaluate mental health status then contact Det".

Pais was last seen in the foothills west of Denver, was considered armed and extremely risky and should not be approached, authorities said.

Investigators say she was last seen in the foothills west of Denver, where some of the schools put on lockdown are located.

Pais traveled to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

All after-school activities, sports and practices will occur as normal except for at Columbine High School, where after-school activities are canceled.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Colorado Department of Education recommended that Denver area schools conduct a "lockout" and controlled release after the alleged threats. The FBI is leading the investigation in Jefferson County, Fulton said. 'We will have extra safety and security staff on site at all schools affected, ' Jefferson County Public Schools said.

As it stands, Spotify is now the only big-name music streaming provider to offer an ad-supported free tier. However, the service would not be expected to have as extensive a catalogue as a service like Spotify.

On April 20,1999, two students killed 12 students and one teacher in a mass shooting at Columbine.

Security alerts and safety drills have become commonplace in public schools across the United States since the Columbine shooting as campus gun violence has grown more frequent. Columbine High School is in Jefferson County.

Officials didn't provide further details or reveal where Pais traveled from, saying it would compromise their investigation.

"There are many people that work diligently day in and day out. that are making the very best decisions they can for the sake of the kids who are in schools each and every day", said Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader.

In a Tuesday night press conference, Phillips said Pais expressed an "infatuation with Columbine" and the two teenage gunmen who perpetuated the shooting in past comments.

Columbine High School and about a dozen other schools are on lockdown as law enforcement says it is investigating what appears to be a credible threat possibly involving the schools. "Children are safe. Deputies are at the schools".

Columbine survivors acknowledge how different things are for their own kids twenty years after they experienced the horror of gunfire in the classroom. There was no immediate indication whether Tuesday's lockdown has any connection to the anniversary.
