"A$3 t 1:53 pm [cops] responded to STEM school off Ridgeline Blvd in HR on call of shots fired in school", the office wrote in a follow-up tweet.

It's possible that a third suspect remains in STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is still being searched, Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said at a news conference.

Authorities say a shooting at a suburban Denver school has injured two people.

Ms Nicholson-Kluth said police and deputies got there nearly immediately and heard shots as they arrived. Two suspects are in custody but the total number of victims is not yet clear. More than 500 of those students are elementary age.

She said she did not believe there were any other gunmen, but tactical teams were still searching the school room by room.

They described the situation as unstable and are directing parents to pick up their children at a nearby staging area.

Bournemouth had plenty of the ball but they struggled to make their two-man advantage count as they rarely troubled Hugo Lloris. Ake's late victor also means Tottenham have lost six consecutive away Premier League matches for the first time since May 2004.

The STEM school has been placed in lockdown.

Concerned mother Kelley Paulson told KMGH that her sixth-grade son got out of the school but her third-grade daughter was still inside.
