    The sheriff’s office is warning people to stay away from the school at 8773 S. Ridgeline Blvd.

    The reports of shots fired came at 1:53 p.m., according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office tweet. Deputies are still trying to identify and locate suspects, the tweet said.

    “Still active and unstable scene,” the sheriff’s office said.

    The STEM School is on lockdown, according to the Douglas County School District. All other Highlands Ranch schools are on lockout, the district said.

    Parents are being asked to go to Northridge Recreation Center at 8800 South Broadway to pick up their children.

    This is likely to get a hell of a lot worse in regards to the casualty count. The question is only how much worse?

    At about 2 p.m. the Douglas County Sheriff's Office put out an alert tied to a shooting at a school with multiple injuries in Colorado.

    “This is still an active shooter situation. We still don’t know whether there is still an active shooter inside,” said a spokeswoman with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office just before 3 p.m. “Two suspects are in custody.”

    The shooting happened at the STEM school at Ridgeline and Plaza in Highlands Ranch at about 1:53 p.m. Highlands Ranch is a suburb of Denver. Authorities asked the public to avoid the area. The sheriff's office said this is an "unstable situation."

    The school has more than 1,850 students in kindergarten through 12th grades.

    At least two juveniles were shot according to 11 News partner CBS Denver.

    Multiple rescue units were on scene treating the injured just before 3 p.m.

    As of 2:40 p.m. deputies were still in the process of identifying and locating the shooter or shooters.

    Colorado Governor Jared Polis sent out the following statement at 3:05 p.m.

    “We are making all of our public safety resources available to assist the Douglas County Sheriff's Department in their effort to secure the site and evacuate the students. We are monitoring the situation in real time. The heart of all Colorado is with the victims and their families.”

    For Parents: STEM Students can be picked up at Northridge Recreation Center at 8800 S Broadway, Highlands Ranch, CO.

    This article will be updated as more information becomes available. 11 News has multiple crews headed to the scene and coverage will continue on 11 News at 4 p.m.

    If you search the hashtag #ColoradoShooting on twitter, the top post is a guy who helped a student who was shot in the back.

    Colorado school shooting leaves 8 students injured in Highlands Ranch; 2 suspects in custody

    At least eight students are injured and two suspects were taken in custody following a shooting at a Colorado K-12 school, according to local authorities.

    The victims were taken to three different hospitals: Children's Hospital Highland Ranch received one victim in good condition, Littleton Adventist Hospital has four victims in serious condition and one in fair condition, and Skyridge Medical Center has two juveniles who were characterized as stable.

    The suspects appear to be juveniles, though it's not clear if they were students at the school, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

    Approximately 1,850 students are enrolled at the school. The campus is just miles away from Columbine High School, the scene of a 1999 school shooting where two students killed 12 other students and one teacher.


    Police are directing parents to nearby Northridge Recreation Center to pick up their children. The public is asked to avoid the area.

    CBS4’s Rick Sallinger talked to a woman who said her daughter is the teacher in the classroom where the shooting apparently happened. Her daughter teaches juniors and seniors.

    “I believe the student was targeting her, from what I understand,” said a woman who said she is the mother of Lauren Harper. “She’s with the police right now … she’s a witness.”

    We just spoke with the mom in the pink sweater who says her 18-year-old daughter told her shooters came into her classroom and other students tackled them. #9News
