Woman made threats against Columbine High School, FBI says

Authorities Searching for Woman After Lockdown at Colorado Schools

The Jefferson County Sherriff's Office today confirmed an 18-year-old woman named Sol Pais travelled to Colorado and made threats that sparked the lockdown.

Following a lockdown at Columbine High School and other Denver area schools, authorities say they are looking for a woman suspected of making threats.

They said she should not be approached but did not provide further details about the nature of the threat except that she was believed to be in the Denver-Littleton area and "attempting to buy firearms".

The Department of Public Safety urged schools urged schools to tighten security, and more than 20 put lockdowns in place. They appealed for anyone seeing her to call an Federal Bureau of Investigation tip line at 303 630-6227, and said she is too risky to be approached by civilians.

Aurora police said just after 2:30 p.m. they were still investigating the general school threats and that people will see extra officers at schools in Aurora during the investigation. But a sheriff's office spokesman, Mike Taplin, said the anniversary of the Columbine mass shooting was not a "direct" factor. As the district prepares for the day's memorial events, it is fending off an onslaught of curious strangers who trespass in the parking lot of the high school - sometimes more than 30 people in a single day.

Jefferson County school officials tweeted that all students and staff were safe and students would be released on a normal schedule.

The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance. "But we do intend to make sure we are engaged with school superintendents and specifically with the Jefferson County School District and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and others and with our law enforcement partners to make the very best decision".

Jefferson County sheriff's office earlier posted photos of the woman on Twitter. At the time it was the deadliest school shooting in United States history.

CBS reported that she was seen in the Jefferson County foothills after arriving in Colorado on April 15.

Also shared was a more complete list of the Jeffco schools impacted: "Bergens, Blue Heron, Columbine HS, Conifer HS, Dutch Creek, Elk Creek, Evergreen HS, Evergreen Middle, Governor's Ranch, Ken Caryl Middle, Leawood, Marshdale, Mt. Evans, Normandy, Parmalee, Ralston, Rocky Mtn Acad of Egreen, West Jeff Elementary, West Jeff MS, Wilmot, Windy Peak, Woodrow Wilson West". The two shooters took their lives in the school's library. There was no immediate indication whether Tuesday's lockdown has any connection to the anniversary.
