Arapahoe High School shooting

A suburban Denver student shot at least one other student at Arapahoe High School on Friday before he apparently turned the gun on himself, authorities said. The 18-year-old shooter — identified by authorities as Karl Pierson — critically wounded a 15-year-old student, but the strategic response by police on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary appears to have averted more bloodshed.
