‘Armed & extremely dangerous’: 20 US schools on lockdown as FBI hunt for ‘Columbine-infatuated’ teen
17 April, 2019, 13:35
Authorities are looking for Sol Pais, 18, who is thought to have made undisclosed threats that prompted Columbine and more than 20 other schools outside Denver to lock their doors for almost three hours Tuesday afternoon.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office subsequently sent out an alert about a person of interest in the case: Sol Pais, an eighteen-year-old woman (from Florida, a knowledgeable source tells us) who is known by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Authorities say she should be considered armed and extremely risky.
"This has become a massive manhunt", Phillips said in a Tuesday night press briefing.
The message to the public came hours after the sheriff's office tweeted that they were probing what looked like "a credible threat possibly involving schools".
The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday describing Pais as "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting".
As the investigation continued into early Wednesday, classes were cancelled and many schools decided not to open at all.

All schools in the Denver metropolitan area were placed on lockdown on Tuesday in response to the threats. The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance. Officials said extra security would be present on the affected campuses.

Columbine High School and roughly 14 other schools in the Denver, Colorado area were put on lockdown Tuesday after police received credible reports of violence, The Hill reported.
He said he had no other information. The school also continues to receive threats, especially following prominent mass shootings.
The frequency of threats means the 1,700 students at Columbine are accustomed to lockouts, when the exterior doors of the building are locked, and lockdowns, when the interior classroom doors are secured.
They include the Douglas County School District, Aurora Public Schools, Jefferson County Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools. Officials emphasize taking every threat - no matter how vague - seriously. They notified area schools that afternoon. "There may be some connection to Columbine but it wasn't a specific directed threat towards Columbine".
