  • Gunman Takes Hostages in High School in Colorado - CNN.com

    This is just being reported.

    BAILEY, Colorado (AP) -- Authorities say an adult gunman is holding at least four hostages at a high school.
    Officials evacuated a high school in this Colorado mountain town and sent a bomb squad and a SWAT team Wednesday after receiving reports that several shots had been fired, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.
    There were no immediate reports of any injuries.
    Jan Howard, a secretary to the superintendent of schools, said students from Platte Canyon High School and the nearby middle school in Bailey were being taken to a safe location.
    Howard said the evacuation came after a loud noise was heard, but "I don't know what the noise was."
    "We have some information that several shots have been fired," sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said.
    The town is 35 miles southwest of Denver

            Let's Keep it Positive? Dude, what part of this situation is positive?

            (To clarify, this situation sucks, of course we all want this to end peacefully, but we're not driving this bus.)

                  Best case scenario, kids will have nightmares for a long time about this. I wish this kind of stuff didn't happen. At least this time, local law enforcement is better-equipped to handle.

                      UPDATE from CNN.com. The man is also saying that he is in possession of a bomb.

                      Two schools were evacuated Wednesday after a gunman claiming to have a bomb opened fire and took hostages at a high school near Bailey, Colorado, officials said.
                      One hostage, a young girl, was released, but the gunman was still holding four others Wednesday afternoon, said Lance Clem, spokesman for the Colorado Public Safety Department. The Colorado State Patrol is assisting, Clem said.
                      Several shots were fired at the school, and the gunman is inside, said Jefferson County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jackie Kelley.
                      She had no information on injuries, but said a bomb squad and SWAT team had been dispatched to the scene.
                      The Park County Sheriff's office would not provide further details, but said it is dealing with a hostage situation.
                      The 450 students at Platte Canyon High School and the 340 youngsters at the adjacent Fitzsimmons Middle School were evacuated, officials said.
                      The students were evacuated to a safe place about 12:10 p.m. (2:10 p.m. ET), the Park County School District superintendent's office said

                        Thank god they have gotten most of the kids out, and things seem to be progressing in an orderly way. In fact, do we know who the guy is holding hostage? Kids or adults?

                            well, looks like higher security for all public schools...
                            (of course colleges are as safe as.. un... nothing. lol)

                            Hope everyone is safe, and they get the man.

                              It looks like that's as much info as the police are releasing right now.
