Pistols used in Colorado school shooting: police

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Colorado police on Wednesday were still trying to determine why two students walked into their school and allegedly opened fire with handguns, killing one person and wounding eight others, just a few miles from one of the nation's deadliest school massacres.

Two surviving victims of the Tuesday attack at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) School in Highlands Ranch remained in serious condition, medical officials said.

Another was stable and five had been discharged from the hospital.

"We're still working toward the motive," Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said.

He declined to identify the person killed in the shooting, though he said the victim was an 18-year-old male three days away from graduation.

He identified one of the two suspected shooters as Devon Erickson, also 18.

The other suspect was a juvenile, Spurlock told a morning news conference, who was later identified as a female.

Spurlock declined to identify any of the victims. Erickson was expected in Douglas County District Court in nearby Castle Rock at 1:30 p.m.

MDT (1830 GMT).

The second suspect will also appear in court on Wednesday, said District Attorney George Brauchler.

The two suspects opened fire in two separate classrooms and were arrested within minutes at the public charter school about 25 miles (40 km) south of Denver, Spurlock said.
