    Two students shot by gunman at middle school in CO (Merged)

    Not a ton of details yet... just happened about an hour ago:

    LITTLETON - Two people were shot at a middle school on Tuesday afternoon, including a 14-year-old and investigators have a suspect in custody.

    Jacki Kelley, spokesperson for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, says one victim was shot inside the school and the other was shot outside the school

    West Metro Fire says a 14-year-old was shot in the arm or the shoulder at Deer Creek Middle School on West Columbine Drive near South Garrison Street.

    Both victims were transported to the hospital, according to Kelley. West Metro Fire says at least one of them was taken to Littleton Adventist Hospital.

    Kelley says deputies have an adult man in custody as the suspect.

    Kelley says Deer Creek is in lockdown.

    UPDATE:

    All of the students are being taken to nearby Stony Creek Elementary School at West Columbine Drive and South Everett Street. Parents can go to Stony Creek to pick up their children.

    Groups of children were sent from one school to the other as investigators cleared Deer Creek.

    Parents should not go to Deer Creek to try and get their children.

    Tamara Veremeer, a parent, says she was outside of Deer Creek when the shootings happened. She says she saw a rifle on the ground.

    One student told 9NEWS he saw teachers tackle the shooter and he saw one of the injured students lying in the grass.

    Deer Creek is home to seventh and eighth graders.

    For me, this reinforces an important point: bad guys do not heed "no guns/firearms" signs, rules, or laws.

    Another "gun free zone" success story

    It sounds like the young folks are going to be ok, that's good news, they have the scum in custody, that's good news.

    We all know, the story will not play out that it's a gun free zone, what will play out is that a gun did this and the Anti's will have another support column on their side, no one will listen to us that it was a gun free zone already, they will listen to them that the law failed, we need more laws to stop this. Watch and see.

    OK, I want to be open-minded here...
    Can someone here name one old or new gun law that would/could have prevented this shooting?

    Gun laws don't work for dirtbags, only jail and/or execution works.

    Geez, another school shooting in that area. That had to give some flashbacks to police and parents. I hope everything turns out ok.

    yes 100% to both of these... what does it take? I always ask myself that question... Vir. Tech..... Columbine... Ohama Mall shooting all = "safe gun free zones" ALL anti's and people that are clueless need to wake up and taste reality.... Gun free zones only breed target zones for the BG's

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Maybe if they banned guns from schools, that would...

    oh, wait...


    Never mind.

    Yep, that's a better idea.

    Sigh....

    But of course they're not going to listen to reason. That gun-free zones kill innocent people. They are going to use this as another excuse to further their agenda and attempt to dis-arm even more "victims"

    BG's know at gun free zones the good guys don't have guns. classic.
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.
