FBI looks for woman ‘infatuated’ with Columbine shooting

A short time ago, the Colorado Department of Education advised all schools in metro Denver to institute lockout protocols because of a threat against multiple Jefferson County schools, including Columbine High School, where a mass shooting took place twenty years ago this week. All students were safe, school officials said.

The FBI and Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said Sol Pais, an 18-year-old white woman, traveled to Colorado on Monday night and made threats against schools.

"She has made some concerning comments in the past. and because of that we were concerned", he said. "She is armed & considered to be extremely risky", the sheriff's office said on Twitter, adding that Pais was wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage trousers and black boots and was last seen in the Jefferson County foothills.

She is reportedly "infatuated" with the 1999 massacre.

Students were dismissed on time but after school activities were canceled at Columbine.

The FBI Denver Division and Jefferson County Sheriff's Office are asking for the public's help regarding a potential credible threat in the Denver metropolitan area.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation say Pais travelled to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition.

Notre-Dame's Rooster Statue Found "Battered" In Debris Of Paris Cathedral
Jihadists linked to ISIS have shared a menacing image of Notre Dame in flames once more, warning: "Wait for the next". Even so, repairing the cathedral - including the wooden beams that made up its roof - presents problems.

Jenny Fulton, another sheriff's spokesperson, said the FBI was investigating the apparent threat.

Among them was Columbine High School, school officials said on Twitter. Officials said extra security would be present on the affected campuses.

Authorities say tightened security at Columbine High School and about a dozen other Denver-area schools is related to an FBI investigation.

Columbine High School in the United States was placed into lockdown by a possible threat posed just days before the 20th anniversary of the mass shooting that killed 13 people.

Police say they received a "credible threat", but, the threat did not name a specific school. The 18-year-old who is allegedly obsessed with Columbine, traveled there Monday night and made the threat. Students at high schools across the country are expected to walk out of classes Friday, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting, in their latest push for gun control. Students are pictured stopping to pay their respects at a makeshift memorial after the attack in 1999. The school district in Jefferson County, which enrolls 86 000 students, pointed to the "ongoing safety concern", instructing all students and staff to stay home for the day.

The frequency of threats means the 1 700 students at Columbine are accustomed to lockouts, when the exterior doors of the building are locked, and lockdowns, when the interior classroom doors are secured.
