Over 20 schools have been placed on lockdown in Jefferson County, Colorado, including Columbine High School.
The lockdowns were taken as a precaution by law enforcement officials following a threat. FBI officials say that Sol Pais is wanted for making threats to the schools and are asking for the public’s help in tracking her down. She reportedly travelled to Colorado from Surfside, Florida, Monday night and issued threats that she would commit an act of violence in the area. Her Florida home has reportedly been searched by police and the FBI, CBS Miami reports.
Pais is a white female, 18 years old, around 5’5″ in height with brown hair. She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, camouflage pants, and black boots. She is considered to be armed and extremely dangerous. The suspect had reportedly had an “infatuation with Columbine.”
Students will reportedly be released at their normal schedule and after-school activities will continue as planned, except at Columbine, where they have been cancelled. This most recent incident comes days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting.
