US Schools Put Under Lockout As FBI Searches For Armed Woman

FBI hunts woman 'infatuated' with Columbine massacre who threatened school

Colorado authorities are searching for a woman they say is "infatuated" with the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and made threats to schools in the Denver metropolitan area.

She made "credible" - but unspecific - threats after traveling from Miami to Denver on Monday night, and is considered unsafe, said Dean Phillips, the special agent in charge of the local Federal Bureau of Investigation office.

Almost 20 school districts in the greater Denver area will be closed Wednesday due to security concerns just days ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

She has not made any specific threats to any particular school, but her reported verbal comments to others made her a credible threat, Phillips said.

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.

Sol Pais is suspected of making threats on Columbine High School, just days before the 20th anniversary of a mass shooting that killed 13 people.

"Please do not approach her as she is considered armed and risky".

Officials did not provide further details about the threats or say where she was from.

At least one school district heeded the advice.

Columbine High School students were released at 2:45 p.m. - their normal release time. All after-school activities, including sports and practices, will go on as scheduled, except at Columbine, where they were canceled as a precaution, the district said.

Students leave Columbine High School on Tuesday.

The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance. She was last seen in the foothills of Jefferson County. The massacre was the deadliest school shooting in American history at the time.

Also shared was a more complete list of the Jeffco schools impacted: "Bergens, Blue Heron, Columbine HS, Conifer HS, Dutch Creek, Elk Creek, Evergreen HS, Evergreen Middle, Governor's Ranch, Ken Caryl Middle, Leawood, Marshdale, Mt. Evans, Normandy, Parmalee, Ralston, Rocky Mtn Acad of Egreen, West Jeff Elementary, West Jeff MS, Wilmot, Windy Peak, Woodrow Wilson West".

All of the students are safe, the Jefferson County Sheriff's office said on Facebook.

In Denver public schools alone, there have been 22 lockdowns and 294 lockouts over the past two academic years, according to school data cited by the Denver Post.

Authorities announced late Tuesday they would be closing all Denver schools on Wednesday.

Another neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said her children attended Miami Beach High School with Pais. There was no immediate indication whether Tuesday's lockdown has any connection to the anniversary.
