"KTAR news ninety two three SM earlier this week. There was another school shooting. This time it was at highlands ranch. A a school outside of Denver, Colorado. And the the tragic an interesting part of all this is this is stem school. This is at a high school where a lot of people said, you know, this is a this is a very well educated. Very upper crust kind of school. Why would this happen here so on and so forth? Let's talk to Alex stone ABC news correspondent who's been following the story now all week since it happened. He covered the shooting at the stem school at highlands ranch in highlands ranch. Alex, give us the latest and give us the update of what you know now about this shooting. And then we'll go into apparently a mom saying that she predicted this. Yeah. And that is the newest information really with this letter that we now know MAC that that was written to the school district back in December that this was an anonymous mom who called the Douglas county school district about five months ago warning that stem school highlands, ranch was a very troubled school and worried of a what she called a repeat of Columbine on the campus saying that there was a perfect storm of a high drug culture at stem, a high pressure environment saying that cocaine math marijuana allies St. were being used on campus for by students many students. She thought. What we're suicidal and violent. Now, we don't know if what her concerns were if that had anything to do with what unfolded this week, if it would have stopped any of that if they had taken action and the district sent the phone call information to the school in a letter to the schools executive director, Penelope euchre, she got it. And then the school claimed that this was a defamation case they wanted to know who this woman was because what she had to say was defamatory they denied any of that was going on even filed a lawsuit. It appears to force the phone company to turn over who the caller was. And then it kind of fell apart doesn't seem like it really ever win anywhere. It's not clear what the school did if anything to respond to these claims coming from this mom, but she apparently felt strong enough about it that she called the school district to say she was worried that you could make the claim that really any high school in the country as a lot of this. Pressure that that really could be anywhere. Alex stone ABC news correspondent following the story out of highlands ranch. Colorado outside of Denver a school shooting left one person dead. Eight injured do we know any more about the students themselves. There were two students. One male one female who is transitioning. Do we know anything more about them or what they're going to be charged with? Well, the charges were going to be filed today. They ended up delaying that until Wednesday. Things are done a little differently in Colorado than they are in many areas instead of just the DA filing whenever they decide they're gonna file they filed them in court. So we know when they appear and when those charges are going to be filed. So they were going to be the eighteen year old and the sixteen year old girl, we're going to be in court today to add those charges filed against them and the DA had been asking for more time. George Brock ller, he became well-known back during the Aurora movie theater shooting because he was a DA then now, he's dealing. With this case, but Brock broccoli wanted Intel early next week because the investigation is still underway wanted to make sure they charge them with the correct charges the appropriate charges and the judge had been scheduled today. I saying trying to get it done today. Well, all the parties agreed that they needed more time. So now they've got until next Wednesday. So little over a week after the shooting. The charges will be filed both will appear back in court. And then we'll find out really what they're going to be charged with likely murder attempted murder. Maybe any number of other things as well. Talking with Alex stone. He's the ABC news correspondent he's covering the school shooting at stem schools Highland ranch in Colorado, Alex back to that letter. It sounds like at least, you know, some of the things that that letter talked about seem to come true. You mentioned that the school opened a defamation case nothing really came of it. What are thirties our school officials saying about it now? Well, not a whole lot. We've got a copy of the letter. So we know that that letter did go to the school, but beyond that, we don't really know the school and the school district. They're not commenting on it. They've only said today take all threats seriously, and that they look into everything, and they may have very well in this case apparent say, they don't know of anything that was done. But even though the school didn't apparently believe what was in this letter. They may have taken action. We don't know really what they did in response to it. I haven't seen the letter you have I have read online reports one of the accused shooter's their Twitter account made references to Adderall things of that nature. When you look at this letter does it seem like it was more vague, accusations and fears or doesn't sound like. What ended up happening is called out in this letter. Even looks like this more general overall atmosphere on campus, and they all right down the street from Columbine. I did it seems like this is a a worried parent because she feels like there is a a lot of drug. Use was a lot of drug use on campus that there there was a lot of pressure. A lot of stress on campus, which at a stem school is not all that uncommon suicidal thoughts mung some students again, unfortunately at a high school is not all that uncommon. So he was relatively general from from what it appears to be in this Alex stone ABC news correspondent who has been covering the shooting at the stem school highlands ranch. Colorado, Alex, thank you so much. We appreciate your time. You gotta take that. Gaydos, best of our KTAR news ninety two three FM. Hi,.

George Brock ller, he became well-known back during the Aurora movie theater shooting because he was a DA then now he's dealing with this case. But br. Doc ler one eight Intel early next week because the investigation is still underway wanted to make sure they charge them with the correct charges the appropriate charges and the judge had been scheduled today. Saying try to get it done today. Well, all the parties agreed that they needed more time. So now they've got until next Wednesday. So little over a week after the shooting. The charges will be filed both will appear back in court. And then we'll find out really what they're going to be charged with likely murder attempted murder. Maybe any number of other things as well. Talking with Alex stone. He's the ABC news correspondent he's covering the school shooting at stem schools Highland ranch in Colorado, Alex back to that letter. It sounds like at least, you know, some of the things that that letter talked about seem to come true. You mentioned that the school opened a defamation case nothing really came of it. What are Thorens our school officials saying about it now? Well, not a whole lot. We've. Got a copy of the letter. So we know that that letter did go to the school, but beyond that, we don't really know the school and the school district. They're not commenting on it. They've only said today take all threats seriously, and that they look into everything, and they may have very well in this case apparent say, they don't know of anything that was done. But even though the school didn't apparently believe what was in this letter. They may have taken action. We don't know really what they did in response to it. I haven't seen the letter you have I have read online reports one of the accused shooter's their Twitter account made references to Adderall things of that nature. When you look at this letter does it seem like it was more vague, accusations and fears or does it sound like what ended up happening is called out in this letter. Even looks like this more general, but overall atmosphere on campus, and they all right down the street from Columbine. Did it seems like this is a a worried parent because she feels like there is a lot of drug. Use was a lot of drug use on campus that there there was a lot of pressure. A lot of stress on campus, which at a stem school is not all that uncommon suicidal thoughts among some students again. Unfortunately at a high school is not all that uncommon.

Was there a problematic culture at the stem school highlands ranch in Colorado before this week's school shooting? ABC's? Alec stone continues his. Coverage of the investigation and joins us now on the KOMO news line, Alex, what's coming to light. I taylor. What we now know the back in December that a parent anonymously called the Douglas county school district warning that stem school islands ranch was a very troubled school worried about a repeat of Columbine on the campus, baron Jiang. There was a perfect storm a high drug culture high pressure environment saying that cocaine math marijuana LSD were being used and many students were suicide and violent. Now, we don't know if anything of what this parent was talking about had anything to do with what unfolded on Tuesday at at the school. With the parent was apparently worried enough to call you could make the argument that there are many high schools across the country that would have high pressure environment students who might be suicidal drugs being used by students. Nonetheless, parrot was worried enough to call the school district and report this district sent the concerns to the school in a letter the director of that school got the letter and claim that the letter was defamatory at that time. They even filed a lawsuit to force the phone company to turn over who made that phone call, and it kind of fell apart from there never really went anywhere. But apparently, they did get this claim made months ago and the school disagreed with it at that time, and it doesn't we don't know if anything was done with that warning. But but seems like it just quietly went away. I wonder if maybe the district had such a strong response initially though, because they invoked the memory of Columbine. It's just down the road from the stem school. Yeah. It only about four or five miles away. It's not very far at all. And everybody in Colorado is still very much connected to the Columbine story whether directly emotionally that that if you live in Colorado, you know, what happened there, and you know, what happened at the Aurora movie theater. Only maybe seven eight miles the other direction out in Aurora, which is not very far away at all. So this is an area that is very attuned to. To what happens with active shooters and the impact of them and people in the area know, very well. And we also learned the school didn't have a uniformed police officer or sheriff's deputy assigned to the school. But there was an armed security guard. What can you tell us about the guards actions during the shooting? Well, we know now that investigators are looking at what that twenty nine year old marine vet with a private security firm. What he did they now believe that he may have been the one firing on responding sheriff's deputies that in the fog of war. Nobody's making the claim. He did this on purpose. But with everything that was going on that he may have thought that they were more shooters coming in and the gun fire that they heard when they pulled up, and when they went running in the gunfire the day took it's now believed may have been coming from him. And the one of the injured students may have been shot by mistake by that security guard. It does not look like a disappointed the sheriff's deputies themselves fired eight bullets. Any rounds? But it does look like the security guard did one of those rounds may have hit a student may have been directed at who turned out to be those sheriff's deputies, and they're trying to turn Ravel all of this. Now that we're told by a number of sources, this is evolving, this may change. But as of now looks like that that that security guard was was firing ABC's. Alec stone with us on KOMO news.

"Encountered the suspects. And I suspect that as the detectives get further interviews from them. We're going to find that there were much more. We continue our coverage of the deadly school shooting in highlands ranch. That was Douglas county sheriff Tony spurlock discussing the incidents, and how students respond and right now we're talking with the Senator representing that district and the community where the shooting happened. We're talking live with Senator Chris holbert? Thank you so much for coming in. And joining us live in studio. You're welcome. Thanks so much for having me, and and covering the story. What were your first thoughts when you heard about this taking place I received a text for a business associate asking if the incident had happened in the district that I represent I hadn't I hadn't heard. So immediately went to social media started looking around, and it was evident that yes, the stem school and highlands ranch is in the district that I represent. I want to thank the Douglas county. Commissioners who reached out very quickly to the other elected officials one of the realities of being a state legislator is we don't have inside information. We're not emergency responders. And I'm just grateful the Douglas county commissioners who were on site very quickly getting information from the sheriff's department and seventy disseminating that information out to other elected officials like we always say after these horrible things, you know, I can't believe it happened in my community. You hear that over and over at this point, we should believe it can happen anywhere. Do you have children in in the Douglas county school district much whose phones are grown? They both graduated from Douglas county high schools or high school Chiappero, my older son is actually a deputy in the Douglas county sheriff's department was he called into action yesterday. I believe he was he was called into the the Justice center down in Castle Rock to relieve. Because so many officers deputies were moved out of that facility north very similar to the day that deputy perish was was killed. The. The response perspective that I have is is of gratitude of face for the emergency planning that our school district are sheriff's department and other emergency responders in the area have have practiced for about twenty years since Columbine. And if parents if if residents are out there wondering what needs to be done, please look back to the past twenty years. I don't have a great insight on that emergency response plan because they keep it rather secret. They don't want people who would do bad things to know what that plan is. But what I'm hearing from sheriff spurlock in Undersheriff Nicholson kluth is confirming the apparently there wasn't an SRO at that school at the time. But what I'm hearing is within a few minutes there were deputies there. And and they ended that situation. That means the plan had to worked as we analyze that the school district the sheriff's department other emergency responders arapahoe county. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all of the the the law enforcement and fire and EMT ambulance services who were there immediately. We saw that at arapahoe high school when it was on the north side of county line road. And yesterday, we saw it on the south side. And I'm I'm grateful for all of those folks and the district employees who jumped in and got all of those students moved off to the rec center, and then help reunite reunites students with with parents the plan it appeared worked. So how can we prevent these things that I suppose that's the discussion can we? But just gratitude for the response. Well, and that's the thing. I mean. Okay. So the plan works at any loss of life is too much the person that that lost his life. Kendrick castio sounds like things are coming out that he was somebody who tried to put himself in harm's way to protect other people. So if the plan worked it could have been worse tough to say that when somebody has lost her life. So how do we prevent it from happening in the first place, you alluded to you don't necessarily know, but you craft shape and create policy is there anything more from that side of the things, and we have to talk about it. Whether it's you know guns. I know people don't like talking about that school safety some of those issues, how do we craft something to prevent this from even becoming what it is that we have to put a policy your plan in place to to make students safe. I think these discussions Colorado need to start with the school district. We have one hundred seventy eight of those in Colorado and the school board in each one of those school districts really is the ultimate authority for what happens with that kind of planning. Whether it's hardening schools single point of entry possibly metal detectors. I I don't know. But those are decisions that are school boards. Make in Colorado and not the governor not the state legislature and other states. If people listening have moved Colorado from some other state, and maybe those decisions are more. Centrally made at the legislature the governor's office just understand Colorado. Those things work differently in rural districts don't have as much resources and in many of our rule school districts are hiring private security armed security in their schools. I think in Douglas county, our school board prefers SRO's, and those are law enforcement officers generally in Douglas county, that means the Douglas county sheriff's deputy, we have those resources and Douglas, but we can't say one-size-fits-all because out of sixty four counties. Not everywhere looks like Douglas and has the population or the budgeting to be able to do that. So. Having that discussion start with our school board. I think is very important in those allowing those solutions to be different based on the community in the budget, the ability to respond in the minute that we have I think that's a great point. What do you say to parents this morning who are frustrated with the legislature? And now the sessions over who are not enforcing or enacting tougher gun control laws yet also not putting any more money into these SRO's at schools or into mental health resources. So it's kind of like what is if one's not being done. Something be done where we have put more money into schools. We've put more money in a been the legislature for nine years and eight of those nine years we've put more money in every year. It's for security, including security the past couple of years since arapahoe high school, clear Davis act tightened security requirements for schools and districts, and we have we have put more money there. The the local school board. Not trying to place blame. But they they have to decide how those resources are spent an ultimately they decide how all of the money is spent in their district. They handle the budget, not the state legislature, not the governor so working cooperative with the school boards in allowing a district to have a different solution than the next. I think that's really important for the for us at the at the legislature quickly mental health as well, just not fortifying schools or the resources for that to counselors people to talk to students that maybe you're feeling whatever they're feeling and have these feelings, and we we again, we don't think we can mandate that a school district would have more counselors or school nurse or whoever that might be. But that's another discussion where providing the funding making sure the school district can do it the way they want to do it. That's I think we're legislators from individual communities, and then collectively legislatures a whole needs to be attentive. Listen to what the school district's need. We fought hard in the past session to buy down. What's called the? Factor. The state legislature. The state has owed about seven hundred million dollars to school districts hundred seventy eight of them, and I'd like to be able to to give that money to them. And let them decide the best way to to allocate it GOP state Senator and minority leader Chris thanks for the time. You're welcome hit nine twenty right around the corner.

He's watching traffic I in and around the highlands ranch stem school and the Northridge rec center, John. What's the latest? It is still very very heavy with traffic on that C four seventy drive. According to you might imagine this scene. This this area where the stem school is. And also the Northridge rec center where the kids are being re reunited with parents about an mile mile and a half apart just south of C, four seventy between loosened and Broadway.

You gotta have your ID. You're going to have to sign the kids out. It is a process, and it is a slow process. I'm seeing a lot of traffic on that highlands ranch.

The area to see four seventy is really jammed up across highlands ranch as you can imagine with the extra traffic with parents trying to get to their kids. You've got a crash coming off the ramp from Santa Fe onto westbound C four seventy that's complicating things storms in the area too. So it is a very slow drive down south.

"Were nine news did a story tonight with their attorneys, and they believe that errands, constitutional rights were violated absolute. And because I now have standing because I did sign in. And I was told I cannot speak. We probably will be moving forward with a lawsuit against the board because it is not. I mean, there's so. Wrapped up in this. Right. We we have a teacher who is offensively going after kids and dachshund them. So that all of the other wack job leftist in the world can attack this kid simply because he's pro-life. He was out a pro-life March. He wore a make America great hat and he smiled at a radical leftist activists who was beating drama space. But are you aware that her original Duxing was no not for that kid? She actually docs, somebody the laws and even there. But Michael, I don't know if you've been following this afternoon, but she sent an apology to the kid and to the father through nine news to the kid not here, the Daf nine news. And let me tell you. Let me read it real quick. She says, I feel horrible. I feel horrible about having made a public appeal. Not having made a. Public apology sooner. I have not been able to make statements of comment on the matter. But I need for you to know how I am about what happened as an educator. I care deeply for children and would never want to cause them harm. She would never want to cause a child harm. But she has doc seeing a kid whether it's the right kid or the wrong kid is irrelevant. She was dachshund a kid simply because they're pro-life and they're wearing a make America. Great hatch. So that all of the radical leftists like her around the country who are religious bigotry against Catholics in Christian can destroy this kid. And then she has the gall to come out in a an apology that I'm sure the union attorneys wrote for her and says, I would never want to cause them harm. What a bunch of crap is that it's a total bunch of crap because of the very nature of dachshund in and of itself is designed to be dangerous harmful. That's right. That's right. So when you say that the constituents, and there are a lot of taxpayers and other people in Douglas county that are upset. How do you gauge that? Well, I have done a lot of radio and television interviews over the last forty eight hours, and the the number of responses that I am getting on Facebook and on Email and phone calls is through the roof, and the the the the constituent in Douglas county for whom I represented for thirteen years and the Colorado legislature. They know how to get a hold of me. They are outrage they are up in arms over this. And and and it was it was enough to be outraged over this teacher who was out of control, and and espousing religious bigotry and she's teaching in our classrooms. But then you have the board of directors for the school board denying constituents residents. Their ability to express their thoughts on this very very important. And and. Toxic matter that is before our community. This lady does not represent Douglas county who abused do not represent most teachers in Douglas county. My my wife is a teacher yet. We are not allowed to go to the board meeting express our sauce on this issue. That is outrageous. They are denying us the residents of Douglas county, our constitutional rights to have our grievances heard to our elected officials on the school board. And that I mean, those two things combined is what is so infuriating itself. Outrageous. I think that's why I have whiplash is because I was upset with the teacher. And and that's kind of been over the past couple of days. That's kind of been my beef is. And again, the lawyer in me is like a mad at this teacher. I think what she did was wrong. I actually think she should be terminated. Because I I can't imagine that under the terms of either a collective bargaining agreement or individual contract, whatever that kind of behavior is acceptable in a in a by a person in a position of trust dealing with children. So so I was upset about that. But I was willing to actually give the Douglas county school district leeway to lease deal with the teacher. So I'm ranting and raving about the teacher thinking, okay? The the school board will do what is appropriate. And then I start I see the video of of Aaron being escorted out by law enforcement. And then I get the phone call from you and the I've got whiplash because now, and that's why I said earlier set aside for just a minute what this teacher did. And let's focus on the issue of what the school board did because we now have to separate. Indistinct issues, we got the teachers behavior, and now we have the school board's behavior. Yep. Holy cow. Unin conservative Douglas county. So let me make just make a comment and get your reaction to that. I had a couple of these conversations with friends and Douglas county, and I have tried to gauge is Douglas county for those listening. Elsewhere Douglas county is a suburban county south of Denver, and it was with the exception of El Paso county. Probably one of the if not the most conservative counties in the state of Colorado. So my my comment you Ted is I'm really beginning to question. Whether Douglas county is is still as conservative as what we thought it was once was well, it certainly has changed since I was first elected to the state house in two thousand and two. So yeah, things have changed a great deal. When you see that the the community elected, these these teachers union. Baggage carriers to to run our school district that that scares me that our community put these people in place, but certainly our board with this made some mistakes that led to this. I you look at Mike top and lost here in highlands ranch. I think the the Walker race was closer than anybody thought here in Douglas county wrote this is the county has changed. I think you're right Ted. I gotta take a break. But I appreciate you taking the time to to talk to us tonight. Stay in touch. Let me know. I mean, no what I can do to help the let's keep the fight going. You're great. Thanks have a great weekend..

He gets that from the Colorado department of education website. Can you think he asks can you think of any other private industry that has not gone bankrupt? We're the ratio of overhead employees to workers is sixty forty or one point five overhead employees for every worker that actually produces that actually does what they're supposed to provide the service or the product that the company is producing or providing. Holy moly. If you want to know. What is wrong with public education? I submit your honor these statistics. Let me repeat it. I want you to go to bed tonight thinking about this. I want you to cover all cuddly and warm in your bed. Then I want you to think. I'm a taxpayer. It doesn't make any difference with you have kids in school or not. Your taxes? Go to help pay for that. Fifteen thousand six hundred and thirty one people of which only six thousand three hundred and fourteen or actually in the classroom teaching now, I don't know whether those six thousand three hundred and fourteen includes. Like para professionals or counselors, but he respective whether it does or not. Only forty percent are teachers. I'd say. Turnaround expert or anything. But I did sleep at a holiday him last night. And I would say that if you want to figure out a way to cut costs cut your damn overhead. Oh, speaking of over overhead. I mentioned yesterday about the Douglas county school district teacher, Michelle or Michelle Chris Griffin. She had deleted her Twitter account after doc seeing a kid Duxing is deal. I n g. Not in the mood to explain it again, go look it up she docs to kid. Someone who is not even in Washington DC doesn't even go to that high school. She tweeted out a picture of him and said he was a member of the lower youth. The Douglas county school district is meeting. I think as we speak. The Douglas county school district. Apparently you have to sign up if you would like to speak. Which makes sense. You don't want to Bob, and you wanna know? Okay. So we've got we have forty five people or four hundred fifty people that want to speak at the school board meeting. So let's have them sign up. And then we can be methodically going through the list of names, and you know, okay? So Billy, Bob, you signed up first your first, and and then, you know, calamity, Jane, you signed up second Angie signed up and that will Michael Brown signed up. Except they also wanna know what you want to talk about. They want your subject matter. And if you're subject matter is that teacher, Michelle, Grissom, they have said, no, you can't talk about that. Now, the last I checked I may be totally wrong about this. But the last I checked the Douglas county school district is exactly that it is a. School district which is a governmental entity, which is paid for by the tax payers. Not just the Douglas county. Everybody listening anywhere else in Colorado, you pay into the general fund in the general fund in the Colorado legislature also goes to help support that district along with all those. Unnecessary people in the Denver school district. They're censoring people. If I want to stand up in a school board meeting, and I want to bitch about the jello school served in the school cafeteria. You can't censor me. And if you think you can. I got a lawyer. I'd like you to meet. Damn I wish you know. I should just pack up and drive down there right now. Just bar. Jim. I can make a scene. I'm very good at making a scene. A new Bill would charge people to unblock porn sites. This comes to us from FOX ten in Phoenix. See we're not the only done masses. Sometimes I think that in Colorado. We're just we're we're like the dumb ass of the country. And that's saying something when you think about you got California, you've got Massachusetts. You gotta Illinois. You got New York. I mean Jiminy Christmas. Phoenix. Arizona house Bill two four four four. I'm sorry to four two four four four write that down state Representative Gail Griffin.

"Who chaperone the Covington trip told. W k or see that their students were targeted from the get-go and subjected to lewd insults that one mother said she just found horrible to watch. So here are the black Hebrews. I'm sorry. The Hebrew the black Hebrew Israelites hurtling homophobic insults at these teenagers. And then the native American ostensibly, I don't buy it. But I'll stint sought to interpose himself between the two groups. But the Vietnam veterans grow directly up to San man, continued banging traditional animal skin drum just inches from the students knows I never interacted with this protester, the students said I didn't speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures. I didn't make any aggressive moves to be honest. I was startled and confused as to why he had approached me. We're out of control. We are freaking out of control. I don't know how many people have had to apologize. Now. We apparently have a teacher down in the Douglas county school district. What's her name? Hang on to find. There's apparently a thing. Thing on Douglas. The school. You're okay. What's this teacher's name? Hang on hang on Michelle Grissom who apparently teaches at the middle school. Who in a tweet that you now can't see because she decided to protect her tweets. In other words, she's locked her account down. So that nobody can see it. Referred to. This man as a Hitler youth. The problem is you've heard of Duxing duck scene. Where is where you? Actually, call out someone who may be in the public arena, and you give out their phone number their address in hopes that somehow you can cause them trouble. Or you make a fake nine one one call this is the worst kind of Duxing you fake a nine one one calling. You say, hey, this is this is so and so and and my husband's got my children like gun point. It's all fake until the swat team shows up bangs Dorf front Dorian to completely unsuspecting couple and somebody's gonna get killed. Doc, saying, well, it turns out that this teacher in the Douglas county school district out of the young man. Not the young man in the video. So that the father of this man, Dr Jackson who is apparently in OB doctor said, hey, would you please take down the picture of my son? He was not at this rally. He was not even there yet this teacher in the Douglas county school district. Pins him not even there as a Hitler youth. Oh. And by the way. Yeah. She teaches at mountain ridge middle school. Michelle grissom. And then she gets you into an online argument with the victims, dad. Now, remember the kid that this middle school teacher has now doc st- had nothing to do with the native American or the black Hebrew Israelites or the Covington Catholic kit. This is some innocent kid somewhere else has nothing to do. But she thinks it looks like they look awfully alike. Why tell me they tell me that the resemblance isn't this yearly the same maybe early the same. Because once we got the wrong person. This is the insanity. The other insanity that we now live in. I rarely rarely. Not even sure I'm going to do it. Now, I rarely call for anybody to be fired. But when a teacher. A middle school teacher viciously dachshunds another student that has nothing to do with this. The Douglas county.
