All Denver Public Schools Closed after 'Credible Threat'

All Denver  public schools  and nearly 20 other local school districts closed Wednesday due to what officials called a "credible threat."  Here's what we know.

The FBI's Denver office said 18-year-old Sol Pais  made threats  after traveling from Miami to Denver on Monday.

Local officials described her as "infatuated" with the Columbine school shooting, although her threats weren't Columbine-specific.

The 20th anniversary of that shooting is April 20.  Authorities know she bought a weapon when she got to Colorado.

Because of that, the FBI said she's armed and dangerous — a credible threat to the community and its schools.

Denver Public Schools said the district agreed to close for the day out of "extreme caution." FBI Special Agent in Charge Dean Phillips said: "She has not made a specific threat to a specific school, but her comments, her actions that we have heard about from others tend to cause us great concern that she may pose a threat to a school."  Authorities are considering charges against the teen and are asking for anyone with information about her whereabouts to contact them.
