Jones was shot twice in the leg.

His classmate, Kendrick Castillo was killed.

Seated between his parents at a news conference on Tuesday, Jones said "There wasn't a whole lot going through my mind at the time.

Adrenaline and tunnel vision are a crazy thing, they make it so that way you don't really focus on anything but what's right in front of your face at that moment." Jones mother, Lorie Jones said that her son "was very calm when he called me, he said, mom this has happened, we've been..

I've been involved in a school shooting, I was shot a couple of times in the leg, but I'm okay.

My first concern obviously is, "Josh, are you bleeding?", and he's like, "Just a little".

So he was really trying to protect me." Two teenagers accused of fatally shooting a classmate and wounding eight others at a Denver-area high school last week are set to return to court on Wednesday for the formal filing of charges.

Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, who was listed on the court docket by the name Maya Elizabeth McKinney but who identifies as male, were both arrested on suspicion of a single count of first-degree murder and 29 counts of attempted murder immediately after the May 7 shooting spree.

The pair is accused of opening fire on fellow students inside two classrooms at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) charter school in Highlands Ranch, about 25 miles south of Denver.
