‘Armed & extremely dangerous’: 20 US schools on lockdown as FBI hunt for ‘Columbine-infatuated’ teen

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

On Tuesday authorities said they are looking pais, suspected of making threats on Columbine High School, just days before the 20th anniversary of a mass shooting that killed 13 people.

While she made no specific threat against schools, Mr Phillips said her comments made her a danger.

Police are searching for an 18-year-old woman, Sol Pais, who investigators believe traveled to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and "made threats to the Denver metropolitan area", the Jefferson County Sheriff's office said on Facebook Tuesday.

A "BOLO" sent out by Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force says that Pais is "infatuated with Columbine school shooting" and was "attempting to buy firearms".

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

Naresh Goyal opts out of bidding for ailing Jet Airways
What was once a 123-aircraft fleet has now been reduced to a meagre seven-plane operation. Meanwhile, the airline has extended suspension of its worldwide operations till April 18.

The sheriff's Twitter post, which included two photos of Pais, said she was dressed in a black T-shirt, camouflage trousers and black boots.

"It's a credible threat ... but she did not make it directly", said Jenny Fulton, a spokeswoman with the sheriff's office.

Authorities say tightened security at Columbine High School and about a dozen other Denver-area schools is related to an FBI investigation.

On Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office placed Columbine and 21 surrounding schools under a security "lockout", allowing activities inside to continue as usual but restricting entry and exit at the schools.

Two hours after announcing the lockouts, the school system reported that all students and staff were safe, adding that students would be released from the schools and buses would run on their normal schedule, though some may be slightly delayed.

Measles case confirmed in Washtenaw County (for real this time)
Measles was eradicated from the United States in 2000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is the epicenter of a measles outbreak that is very, very troubling and must be dealt with immediately.

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

Teenage gunmen attacked Columbine on April 20, 1999, killing 12 classmates and a teacher. Columbine High School is in Jefferson County.

Please call the Federal Bureau of Investigation tipline at (303) 630-6227 where your call will be answered immediately if you have seen this individual or have information on her whereabouts.

"And in that regard, I know that this opens a wound, especially on this anniversary week, for those families who were most deeply impacted by this", Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader said. There was no immediate indication whether there was any connection to the anniversary.

The undisclosed threats led Columbine and several other high schools outside Denver to lock their doors for almost three hours. Extra precautions were taken at schools near Columbine, where sheriff's deputies were on hand.
