Shots fired in Bailey?

Anyone know what's up? Just saw the banner on I hope it's not really shots.

Something about a gunman, hostages and a bomb.

BAILEY, Colo. — Platte Canyon High School and the adjoining Fitzsimmons Middle School were on lockdown Wednesday afternoon, with some students being evacuated after reports of shots fired, according to local media reports.

The Jefferson County bomb squad and SWAT team responded to a reported emergency in Bailey, which is located about 50 miles southwest of Denver. The two schools share a wall with each other.

One local affiliate, KCNC-CBS, reported that one gunman and a hostage may be in the building.

U.S Highway 285 is reportedly closed as crews respond to the scene.

There are no reports of any injuries.

Platte Canyon High School had 467 students enrolled during the 2005-2006 school year, according to its Web site. Fitzsimmons Middle School has about 350 students.

Calls to Bailey police and the Park County sheriff were not immediately returned.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy

^ sadly, no. a good friend of mine here in gunny went to Platte Canyon and he knows everyone that was involved (except the shooter) and was good friends with that girl. my condolences to ALL involved because this is such a travesty.

in all my times of going there for school related stuff, it was always such a chill vibe there, its so sad it had to happen at a place like that....

update: Duane Morrison was apparently the gunman....a transient from the area......

Why did he do this? What was his motive? Watched the news this morning but couldn't catch anything helpful.

i haven't seen any motive declared... but the scene described (holding 6 girls, releasing 4, still holding 2) made it sound like sexual assault may have been the motive. a boy from the class was interviewed on the today show made it sound that way too. don't know what the timeframe was that that sicko was alone with those girls before the swat team came.

jesus. anyone ready to have kids?
