Doesn’t seem worth while to report something and provide 0 info other than “ something might have happened but we’re not sure if anything did or did not happen... just a possible “situation”...”

It literally says they have reporters on route... but are already reporting.

But hey “ you heard it here first”

I took screen shots Incase this amounts to something or nothing at all..” there not even really informing anyone.... people get the alert on their phone and word of mouth, txting and social media take it from there....

LOTS of “mass shootings” down around there. My folks live like seven miles away. I’ve been to the park near there a dozen times.

Apparently the guns in that sector are not controlled.

An update says as many as 8 were wounded with several in critical condition. The school is for K-12.

A shooting Tuesday afternoon at a school in Colorado sent at least eight people to the hospital and two suspects are in custody, the sheriff's office said.

Authorities believe that the two suspects behind the incident at STEM School Highlands Ranch -- an adult male and a juvenile male -- are students of the school, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said during a news conference.

The suspects "walked into the STEM school, got deep inside the school and engaged students in two separate locations," the official said. "There were a number of students that were shot and injured."

Of the eight students taken to nearby hospitals, several are listed in critical condition, according to Spurlock. "No staff or officers" were injured, the sheriff's office tweeted.
Injuries reported, 'unstable situation, shots fired' at Colorado school, sheriff says

Response time was 2 minutes. Shooting was still happening when LEOs arrived. The sherriff's station is about .7 miles or so away, up a four-lane road, and I'm almost sure you can see the office park where the school is FROM the station.

Short of having a gun in the classroom (which we're obviously all in favor of), it's not clear to me that an on-site SRO could necessarily have gotten on the scene a whole lot faster. I've run past that school a few times, but I'm not familiar with the layout and to be honest everything around there looks like the Dunder-Mifflin building.

Yet another instance of kids going into schools they attend/attended and shooting their fellow students and teachers.....

1 dead, eight injured in Colorado school shooting

Two suspects, both students at the school, were captured at the scene, authorities said. Two of the injured were listed in serious condition.


The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said the suspects began firing at students in two classrooms.

Police said one of the suspects is 18-year-old Devon Erickson and the other is a juvenile.

The Denver Channel wrote that multiple sources say “the second suspect, who is a minor, is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.” The motive, the station alleges, “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school,” adding that one suspect “was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.”

I am not necessarily blaming bad parenting but in the last generation or two I see a lot more "parents" expecting their children to pretty much raise themselves. It is easy for an impressionable youth to get in with the wrong crowd, have bad influences, and make bad life choices when the parents aren't actively involved in the child's well-being.

It seems this event isn't making the 24/7 news like other "mass" shootings have in the past. Is there something they are trying to keep on the low down I wonder...maybe something doesn't fit the narrative?

Probably this...

Now with this, watch how quickly this shooting gets scuttled.

I watched some news this morning and wondered why the story still wasn't plastered across all of the TV screens. Now, it seems to make sense. The wrong people are suspects, can't blame white males or the NRA.

Move along folks, nothing to see here.

The problem I see there (apart from the fact that there's sickos who shoot up schools), is that now, the dems have a "armed guards in schools don't work" argument.

Or you can say how much worse it would've been without the armed guards. It was two people, not one lone gunman this time. Still waiting for more details though. This story is dead quiet already

The wrong type of firearm was used. It was a handgun, the news media would have gotten a lot more mileage out of the story if the shooter used a semiauto rifle.

This is exactly why they won't report it. Because it points out the absurdity of the current liberal talking points.

There is a 40% suicide rate for transgender people. We need to stop treating mental illness like it is normal. Imagine if people demanded you support a schizophrenic or MPD patient as normal.

Oh they'll use it. Mention it as a non-debatable point of the gazillions of mass shootings every year. It's not what you report but how you report it.

In the north woods likely hunting or trapping
So what were the firearms used? Where di they get them? MM is not reporting i so it must not be able to be used against legal law abiding firearm owners. Also seems like a combination of bullying and mental health issues not being addressed. When will people stop avoiding these issues, especially parents, and not ignore them

Wonder how old. This was an elementary school, was this a student? People have no idea what they want at these ages. This should not even be available to minors.
