At least seven, “possibly eight,” people have been injured in a shooting at STEM school Highlands Ranch, according to Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth.
The victims have been taken to area hospitals, Nicholson-Kluth said.
Deputies heard shots being fired when they arrived at the school, she said. Nicholson-Kluth said she believes the shooting started in the middle school.
School resource officers and officers from a nearby substation entered the school almost immediately, she said. A student resource officer was not assigned to the school but there was one nearby, Nicholson-Kluth said.
