Two students on Tuesday shot and killed one classmate and wounded eight others inside their charter school near Denver. Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said Devon Erickson, 18, and a younger student walked into the STEM School Highlands Ranch with two handguns and began shooting students in two classrooms. The school’s security guard detained one suspect, and within minutes, deputies from a nearby sheriff’s department substation ran into the school and arrested both suspects after a struggle. Spurlock said the deputies’ quick response helped save lives.
