Slain teen charged attacker in Colorado school shooting

Student killed in Colorado STEM shooting was three days away from graduation

Five months ago, a school district official urged the STEM School's director to investigate allegations of student bullying and violence by a parent who feared they could lead to the next "Columbine".

Another difference between the anger in Colorado and the activism in Parkland was the role of the adults in the room, students tell TIME.

One of the Colorado charter school shooting suspects "always joked" about massacring his classmates, a former student says. In the 2017-18 school year, STEM shared an SRO with another Highlands Ranch charter school, SkyView Academy, which is just less than 7 miles away.

Student witnesses said Erickson opened fire in his British literature class. Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old who was on the school's robotics team, lunged toward his classmate and was fatally wounded, classmates said.

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said Friday his department did not renew its STEM School Highlands Ranch contract amid a dispute over resource officers' duties.

His 16-year-old accused accomplice, referred to in court by his lawyer as Alec McKinney, was listed on the court docket by the name Maya Elizabeth McKinney but was addressed by the judge during the hearing as Mr McKinney.

He was the only one killed in the attack last Tuesday afternoon, but eight others - all students - were injured as well. Both guns were purchased legally, the source said.

The two students walked into their school with handguns and opened fire in two classrooms, authorities said. Formal charges are expected next week.

However, Brauchler told reporters that prosecutors are still considering whether to try the 16-year-old suspect as an adult or not.

"I'm pretty sure the shooter said, 'Shut up or I'll shoot all of you, '" he told "CNN Newsroom".

The school said it conducted an investigation, which included informing 2,800 parents of the allegations "in the hopes" that somebody would "confidentially" come forward with information.

Investigators have not offered a motive for the shooting.

The Advocate obtained screenshots of Erickson's Facebook page, which show one of the teen's profile images containing a rainbow overlay celebrating Pride.

"He would say so-and-so doesn't like me", Beatty said, but didn't talk about anything beyond that.

But the school's executive director, Penelope Eucker, said in a statement to CNN: "The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our highest priority".

Erickson and McKinney have been in jail since Tuesday on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

"The unfortunate fact is that schools with and without SROs have experienced violence", reads a statement from STEM's public relations firm.

Authorities were seen outside a home in Highland Springs believed to be owned by Erickson's parents, James and Stephanie.
