FBI seeks woman 'infatuated with Colombine' in Colorado schools threat

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A woman described as "infatuated" with the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, who bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition after she flew into Colorado on Monday, was an extreme threat the FBI and police said on Tuesday.

Columbine and dozens of other Denver-area schools were issued a security threat Tuesday afternoon and a decision will be made early Wednesday as to whether schools will be in session or other security measures taken, officials said in a late night press conference.

"We consider her a credible threat to the community," said Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge of the Denver office, Dean Phillips, at a news briefing.

Earlier Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office issued a warning, calling the woman they identified as Sol Pais, 18 of Florida, as "extremely dangerous." Phillips said the local FBI were notified by the FBI's Miami office that Pais made verbal threats and had traveled to Colorado.

She has not made any specific threats to any particular school, but her reported verbal comments to others made her a credible threat, Phillips said.

He did not offer specifics about the comments at the press conference.

FBI agents, along with Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies and Colorado state troopers, have searched for her, including hunting through rural Jefferson County foothills throughout the day and have published her name and photo in local media.

"We are still chasing leads," Phillips said.

Pais has not been charged with any crime, but Phillips said, "Our priority is to find miss Pais."
