Denver schools shut as police hunt armed woman 'infatuated' with Columbine

A dozen Denver-area schools will be closed on Wednesday (April 17) as the FBI and police search for a woman they say is 'infatuated' with Columbine.

They say she's armed - and reportedly made verbal threats before traveling to Colorado.

This comes just days before the school shooting's twentieth anniversary.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FBI DENVER SPECIAL AGENT-IN-CHARGE DEAN PHILLIPS, SAYING: "We identified Ms. Sol Pais as having traveled from Miami.

She has made some concerning comments in the past.

She has expressed an infatuation with Columbine and the shooting that happened there twenty years ago.

We identified that she departed the airport and went to a store where she did procure a weapon.

She obtained a pump action shot gun and ammunition.

She was then taken to an area where she was last seen out towards the foothills and we have been trying to find her ever since." On Tuesday, twenty-two schools in the area were placed under a security lockout.

Activities inside the schools will continue as usual, but entry and exit will be restricted.

Officials said they would make a decision on Wednesday (April 17) on whether other security measures will be taken and if schools will remain in session.

After-school activities have been discontinued at Columbine as a precaution.
