Woman made threats against Columbine High School, FBI says

On April 20, 1999, a pair of students rampaged through Columbine High School, murdering 12 of their classmates and a teacher and wounding 24 before killing themselves.

The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice describing Pais as "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting".

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said deputies were posted at the schools involved.

Columbine High School students were released at 2:45 p.m. - their normal release time.

Authorities did not disclose how Pais came to the attention of law enforcement or how the alleged threats were conveyed.

Tuesday's lockout, less serious than a public safety "lockdown", means that activities inside the schools may continue as usual but entry and exit is restricted, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter.

The undisclosed threats led Columbine and several other high schools outside Denver to lock their doors for almost three hours.

She is from Surfside, Florida in the Miami area and had flown into Denver International Airport Monday.

Pais was last seen in the foothills west of Denver, was considered armed and extremely unsafe and should not be approached, authorities said.

The school, as well as 20 others around the Denver area in Colorado, were placed into lockdown by police about 1.40pm local time today due to a "credible threat". "There may be some connection to Columbine but it wasn't a specific directed threat towards Columbine". Some say they just want to pay their respects, but others claim they are in love with the shooters - or sometimes that they have been reincarnated with the shooters' souls. They say she was last seen in the foothills west of Denver, where some of the schools put on lockdown are located. "We will have extra safety and security staff on site at all schools affected", Jefferson County Public Schools said.

The 20-year anniversary of the shooting is on Saturday. Students at high schools across the country are expected to walk out of classes Friday, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting, in their latest push for gun control. The students walked to crosswalks and buses parked near the entrance.

The FBI Denver Division and Jefferson County Sheriff's Office are asking for the public's help regarding a potential credible threat in the Denver metropolitan area.

Officials said after school activities will be held at all schools except Columbine, but didn't explain why.
