Two Armed Suspects Detained Inside Denver Middle School

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Denver police have detained two individuals who they say entered an empty school building late Monday armed with two long rifles.

Police Chief Robert White says the two juveniles were apprehended inside the school early Tuesday.

 

Police had earlier surrounded Noel Middle School and a bomb squad was called to the scene after janitors reported a break-in Monday night. Police sent a telephone notification to neighborhood residents warning them to stay indoors.

White says officers watched the two individuals on the school's security cameras and saw they were carrying backpacks as well as rifles. Police tried to use the school's public address system to try to communicate with them.

White said at a 3:30 a.m. news conference that the rifles or the backpacks haven't been recovered. Officers had feared the backpacks contained explosives.
