Officials say two people suffered injuries in a reported shooting at a Colorado high school Friday afternoon and the gunman is dead.

It happened at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado. The Arapahoe County Sheriff says the suspected shooter, who was a student at the school, has died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“The (suspected gunman) identified a specific teacher at Arapahoe High School that he was interested in targeting,” Robinson said in a press conference outside the high school, saying the situation began materializing around 12:30 p.m.

Robinson says the shooter was armed with a shotgun. The teacher that had been targeted was escorted from the building and is safe.
