Teenager 'infatuated' with Columbine shooting is being hunted by Federal Bureau of Investigation

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

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said in a Tuesday Facebook post that officials were looking for an 18-year-old woman who allegedly made threats.

Aurora Public Schools, east of Denver, said all of its schools were "placed in secure perimeter".

Jefferson County Sheriff's Department tweeted about the lockdown mid-afternoon Tuesday.

They said she should not be approached but did not provide further details about the nature of the threat except that she was believed to be in the Denver-Littleton area and "attempting to buy firearms".

Since April 20, 1999, when two gunmen stormed Columbine, killed 13 people and wounded 24 more, threats of violence have become a painful fact of everyday life for the high school and the highly-trained security team tasked with keeping it safe.

Almost 20 years ago, two students, Dylan Klebold, 17, and Eric Harris, 18, killed 12 students and one teacher in a mass shooting at Columbine. The FBI and other authorities are looking for an 18-year-old woman who is believed to be connected to the lockouts and who is considered armed and risky, according to the FBI. "She is armed and considered to be extremely unsafe", the office wrote on Facebook.

Jefferson County Public Schools tweeted a list of 22 elementary, middle and high schools placed under lockout.

"Because of her comments and her actions, because of her travel here to the state, because of her procurement of a weapon immediately upon arriving here", he said, "we consider her to be a credible threat - certainly to the community and, potentially, to schools".

Embiid said the voracious booing that was largely absent during the dark days of the Sixers 10-win season was tough to hear. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called Johnson's actions "completely unacceptable".

The department's announcement came after the same threat lead to an earlier lockout of several Jefferson County schools, including Columbine High School. As the district prepares for the day's memorial events, it is fending off an onslaught of curious strangers who trespass in the parking lot of the high school - sometimes more than 30 people in a single day. All after-school activities will go on as scheduled, except at Columbine, where they were cancelled as a precaution, the district said.

In December, an anonymous caller claimed bombs had been planted inside Columbine high school.

The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance.

She was last seen in the foothills of Jefferson County Monday, but the exact location was not divulged.

Jenny Fulton, another sheriff's spokesperson, said the FBI was investigating the apparent threat.

Officials had no answer at the time of the press conference as to whether schools would open on Wednesday. The school also continues to receive threats, especially following prominent mass shootings. There was no immediate indication whether there was any connection to the anniversary.

Another neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said her children attended Miami Beach High School with Pais.
