FBI searching for Woman Infatuated with Columbine shooter
Authorities said Tuesday that they are looking for a young woman who is "infatuated" with the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and made threats just days before the 20th anniversary of the attack that killed 13 people.
The undisclosed threats led Columbine and several other high schools outside Denver to lock their doors for nearly three hours. All students were safe, school officials said.
The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday describing the woman as "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting." The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.
The Associated Press said they left messages at two numbers listed as the woman's relatives in Florida, while another number was disconnected.
The doors were locked at Columbine and more than 20 other schools in the Denver area as the sheriff's office said it was investigating threats against schools related to an FBI investigation.
Columbine students continued attending classes in the afternoon and left school on time, but after-school activities were canceled on the campus in Littleton, Colorado.
Teenage gunmen attacked Columbine on April 20, 1999, killing 12 classmates and a teacher.
