3 people shot in suburban Denver school parking lot


AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Three people were shot in the parking lot of a high school in the Denver suburb of Aurora, and the school is on lockdown, police said. The shooting came after six students from another Aurora high school were shot and injured at a park near their school.

The Aurora Police Department tweeted that two of the people shot shortly before 12:30 p.m. on outside Hinkley High School were taken to a hospital and that a third managed to get to a hospital on their own. No additional details were immediately available and police did not immediately respond to telephone messages seeking comment.

KCNC-TV obtained cellphone video that the TV station said was taken from a car inside the parking lot as shots were being fired. A youth in the vehicle is heard saying, “”Oh, no. No, no, no,” and seen crouching as the shots continue ringing out.

Gov. Jared Polis said he was thinking about the two injured people in the hospital — and added that the back to back shootings are a message that action to curb youth violence is needed.
