Colorado school shooting suspect appears in court
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — One of two teen suspects charged in a Colorado school shooting that killed one student and injured eight others will have a preliminary hearing in September.
A judge set the Sept. 24-26 hearing for 18-year-old Devon Erickson during a brief court session on Friday.
Erickson and 16-year-old Alec McKinney face multiple counts of murder and attempted murder in the May 7 shooting at the STEM School Highlands Ranch in suburban Denver.
They are accused of walking into the school and opening fire with handguns in two classrooms.
An 18-year-old student, Kendrick Castillo, was fatally shot when he and two classmates tackled one of the suspects.
Investigators have not offered a motive. The judge has kept both court files sealed to the public.
