Cops: 2 people shot in suburban Denver school parking lot
AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Two people have been shot in the parking lot of a high school in the Denver suburb of Aurora, and the school is on lockdown, police said Friday. The shooting came after six students from another Aurora high school were shot and injured Monday at a park near their school.
The Aurora Police Department said in a tweet that those shot Friday outside Hinkley High School were being taken to a hospital. No additional details were immediately available and police did not immediately respond to a telephone message seeking comment.
In Monday’s shooting, the six students from Aurora Central High School were the victims of a drive-by shooting and police have not arrested anyone yet. The two schools are several miles apart.
The victims in Monday’s shooting, boys and girls ranging in age from 14 to 18, were all expected to survive but police chief Vanessa Wilson said Tuesday that two of them had “significant” injuries and faced long recoveries.
Numerous shell casings fired from different guns were found at the scene of Monday’s shooting and it is possible some rounds were fired by someone on foot, police said. Police have said they have located one of two cars involved in that shooting.
