AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A school investigation has found that the principal of a suburban Denver high school waited up to an hour to report threats allegedly made by an armed administrator.

Sentinel Colorado reported Tuesday that a district audit found that after Aurora West College Preparatory Academy principal Taisiya Tselolikhin (TIE'-ya Tel-ah-sa-keen) reported dean Tushar Rae's threats to school security on April 3 she refused to have the school's perimeter secured because she didn't want to make a scene.

According to court documents, she and Rae were romantically involved and had been involved in two domestic violence incidents.

Law enforcement investigators allege that Rae took a handgun from his waistband and placed it between him and the principal, saying he didn't want to hurt her but was going to shoot the knee caps off two administrators.
