Authorities respond to ‘credible threat’ at Columbine High and other schools

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

Authorities requested the lockout in Jefferson County on Tuesday afternoon as they searched for the suspect, whose description was released on Twitter with a warning not to approach her.

Columbine High in Littleton and several schools in the area were earlier placed on a "lockout", the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office tweeted.

Officials are now seeking 18-year-old Sol Pais from florida in connection with the threat said to be armed and risky, and "infatuated" with Columbine.

Authorities said Pais was last seen in the foothills west of Denver, was considered armed and extremely risky and should not be approached.

The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday describing Pais as "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting".

Authorities are being told if they spot her, to detain her and evaluate her mental health. She has not been charged with any crime but the priority was to find her, he said. Phillips said that would not prevent authorities from apprehending Pais.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, along with Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies and Colorado state troopers, have searched for her, including hunting through rural Jefferson County foothills throughout the day and have published her name and photo in local media.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said Pais traveled to Colorado Monday night and made threats.

Doors were locked at Columbine and at more than 20 other schools in the Denver area on Tuesday afternoon after the threat.

Students are leaving classes after tightened security at Columbine High School and over 20 other Denver-area high schools after a lockdown caused by a possible threat.

Jenny Fulton, another sheriff's spokesperson, said the FBI was investigating the apparent threat. "But we do intend to make sure we are engaged with school superintendents and specifically with the Jefferson County School District and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and others and with our law enforcement partners to make the very best decision". The massacre was the deadliest school shooting in American history at the time.

On Tuesday, some schools released their students after additional security was called in and cancelled evening activities or moved them inside. 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. Columbine High School is also located there.

School security chief John McDonald talks with judicial specialist Maryann Peratt in Columbine High Schools new library, which was built after the 1999 attack.

Students leave Columbine High School.
