A teenager has been killed and seven others seriously wounded after two pupils allegedly opened fire at STEM School Highlands Ranch, near Denver, Colorado.

According to reports, the shooting took place on Tuesday, near the Columbine High School, the site of one of the US’s worst school shootings 20 years ago. Both attackers have been arrested.

The attackers, a male youth, and an adult male both walked into the school, got deep inside the school and engaged students in two separate locations”, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said. They are said to be pupils of the school.

One 18-year-old male pupil was fatally shot. A handgun was later recovered at the scene.

The school was closed and placed on lockdown as police attended the scene.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis tweeted he would send extra police officers to the scene.

The White House also tweeted its condolences to the victims, while spokesman Judd Deere said President Donald Trump “has been briefed and continues to monitor the ongoing situation”.
