Columbine Placed On Lockout Over ‘Credible Threat,’ Law Enforcement Investigating

Authorities Searching for Woman After Lockdown at Colorado Schools

Columbine - Denver-area schools were closed on Wednesday as authorities searched for a woman they said was a "credible threat" to the community, a scare that comes just days before the 20th anniversary of one of the country's deadliest school shootings at Columbine High School. Columbine and more than 20 other schools outside Denver lock their doors for almost three hours onTuesday afternoon before Wednesday's complete closures were announced. He told Hickenlooper he'd like to see more funding go to educators.

Authorities said Tuesday that they are looking for a young woman who is "infatuated" with the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School and made threats just days before the 20th anniversary of the attack that killed 13 people. "She is armed and considered to be extremely risky", the office wrote on Facebook.

"She has made some concerning comments in the past. and because of that we were concerned", he said.

"It is our understanding they are searching for a suspicious person", Wilson said.

Officers were "investigating what appears to be a credible threat possibly involving the schools", the sheriff's department said on Twitter, adding that students were safe and additional deputies were dispatched to the schools.

Pais has shown an "infatuation" with the 1999 shooting at Columbine, said Dean Phillips, head of the Denver office of the FBI, which is leading the investigation.

Earlier, an Federal Bureau of Investigation bulletin said authorities lacked probable cause for a formal arrest but that law enforcement should detain Pais for a "mental health" evaluation.

Users are also said to receive the ability to draw a selection by dragging multiple fingers on a list or collection of items. However, since shaking an iPad looks a bit weird, iOS 13 is said to bring a new standard undo option for iPad users.

Students left classes on time, but after-school activities were canceled at Columbine in Littleton, Colorado.

The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance. "And in that regard, I know that this opens a wound, especially on this anniversary week, for those families who were most deeply impacted by this", Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader said.

The FBI alerted Jefferson County authorities to the threat around 11 a.m., the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.

Jenny Fulton, another sheriff's spokesperson, said the FBI was investigating the apparent threat.

Officials had no answer at the time of the press conference as to whether schools would open on Wednesday.

After-school activities and sports practices would also continue as scheduled - except at Columbine, where they're canceled for the day, the school said.

In Denver public schools alone, there have been 22 lockdowns and 294 lockouts over the past two academic years, according to school data cited by the Denver Post. There was no immediate indication whether Tuesday's lockdown has any connection to the anniversary.
