LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– At least eight students got wounded Tuesday in a shooting at a school in suburban Denver, Colorado, USA, authorities said.

Two suspects were apprehended after the shooting at the STEM School Highlands Ranch, which covers K-12, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said.
The suspects are students; one is believed to be an adult male and one is believed to be a juvenile, he said.
The shooting began in the high school just before 2 p.m., authorities said. The suspects walked into the school, and “got deep inside the school,” engaging students in two separate locations, Spurlock said.
Almost immediately, the school notified authorities.
“Over the next few minutes, quite a few shots were fired,” Douglas County Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth said.
“As officers were arriving at the school they could still hear gunshots,” Nicholson-Kluth said.
The first sheriff’s deputies arrived within two minutes and engaged the suspects, Spurlock said.
Spurlock said officers “did struggle with the suspects to take them into custody.”
He did not release the suspects’ names.

Sheriif says several victims are in a critical condition

“We do not have any other suspects.. We have all the people who were involved,” Spurlock said.

A number of students were shot and several are in critical condition, the sheriff said. The youngest victim is 15 years-old, he said.
At least three local hospitals were treating eight patients after the shooting.
Five patients were being treated at Littleton Adventist Hospital in Littleton, hospital spokeswoman Wendy Forbes told CNN in an email.
One victim was in good condition at Children’s Hospital Colorado South Campus in Highlands Ranch, according to Jaime Berg, a spokeswoman.
Two juvenile patients were being treated at the Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree.
