Photos: Shooting at Arapahoe High School

Shooting-25.jpg

Karl Pierson, who has been identified by 7 News as the student behind the Arapahoe High shootings, was reportedly targeting a librarian who had kicked him off the debate team when he brought a shotgun to the Centennial school on Friday. Instead, he ended up wounding two other teenage students, one seriously, before taking his own life. Photographer Brandon Marshall arrived as students gathered at meeting points around the school and police surveyed the crime scene.

I hope someone commits an act of Darwinization at said gun show....even better if taking out other fellow gun nutters.

" As if cops dont kill infinitely more people per year" First of all, cops do not "kill infinitely more people per year" because the number of justifiable homicides committed by law enforcement officers number in the hundreds on average per year....for the entire nation. Compare that to the overall number of murder victims, which number in the tens of thousands. The only thing skewed here is your rhetoric.

Stats Anthony? I wonder what the stats would look like without police? How many citizen arrests have you made lately?!?

Stupid. The shooting was yesterday and the shooter shot himself too. That is just the beginning of what's to come. These shootings happen for one more attempt by the gov at gun control. Pretty soon I think we'll have these guys walking around everywhere. Hopefully people wake up before we have tanks driving down our streets. After the fact of course. He might see a bunny to unload on, Na probably just wait for some innocent bystander to shoot because he doesn't like the way he looks grabbing for his chapstick.

Didn't the shooting happen like yesterday ? No need for him to be there unless they have intel that something will happen again today

Your people haven't been on a "scene" for over a decade. Write an article about being relevant.

Nothing wrong with his rifle, people..I'd definitely feel safe with that as opposed to a handgun

Only 15 rounds are legal in the state of colorado. That man has more then a 15 round magazine.

Thats a cop? Why does he look more like an assault team member on a seal squad?

I just dont get why cops can have overly high capacity AR mags. As if cops dont kill infinitely more people per year than in any form of shooting outside of an apartheid. And I'm not anti gun I'm a veteran. Just seems pretty skewed when you really go into statistics...

@Justan Michael Carlson  ... America's puerile infatuation with guns is rather childish.

The strict gun laws of Colorado didn't stop this, and by the state representatives own admission, background checks wouldn't have either. In the end, it was a man with a gun that stopped this shooter. Cry about it all you'd like.

@Joe Heinz ... to whom are you praying? ... the same "god" that allowed her to get blasted by a shotgun in the first place?

Interesting how these conversations develop, isn't it? Thanks for posting, Deb.

As of midday Monday, Claire Davis is still in stable condition. Let's hope improvement is just around the corner. Thanks for posting, Pinkey.

@Brendan Flynn ... why people like you should NEVER possess firearms.

Only applies to citizens. And large magazines are not illegal, selling new ones is illegal.

That photo of the gun-show poster so near the school definitely got people's attention. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Hayley.

@DonkeyHotay Guns stopped this from becoming a mass killing, just like the NRA suggested. You lose.

@JimTom makes me thankful for the Arms Company bans on supplying law enforcement. Law Enforcement should never be permitted to own firearms that civilians cannot.

@JimTom That's our understanding, too, JimTom. Thanks for posting.

@terrogin ... if you mean the gun the shooter used to kill himself, then yes.
