More than a dozen school districts in Colorado are closed Wednesday after the FBI and local law enforcement warned of an 18-year-old white woman who is "armed and dangerous" in the Denver metropolitan area.
Sol Pais, a South Florida teenager, is known because she "made some concerning comments in the past" and had an "infatuation" with the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and its perpetrators. She is considered a threat to the community and potentially to schools and she was seen in Denver area. „Federal, state, and local law enforcement are working together to keep our community safe,” the Colorado Public Safety office wrote. “This has become a massive manhunt,” investigators said in a news conference at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The 20th anniversary of the Columbine shooting is Saturday. Two students at Columbine High School killed 13 people and injured 24 more and then killed themselves on April 20, 1999. Pais had not been charged with a crime as of Tuesday evening, Columbine High School and several others in Jefferson County were placed on "lockout" Tuesday, which means entry and exit are restricted while classes continue as usual.
Sol Pais was found dead in the mountains west of Denver. It was not immediately clear how she died.
