Kendrick Castillo's parents and classmates remember him as hero

Kendrick Castillo's parents and classmates remember him as hero

It's a lesson that not all school shooting survivors are willing to quickly turn their grief into demands for gun control and political change like many students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

The parent also alleged "an extremely high drug culture" on the campus in suburban Denver, warning it was "the ideal storm".

The letter said the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and Douglas County Department of Human Services also had been alerted, per district protocol.

In the May 10 news release, Sheriff Tony Spurlock said STEM had not been making the best use of its school resource officer's time and provided 20 pages of documents detailing the relationship between DCSO and the school. There was no response, Bialy told a roomful of reporters yesterday as he recalled what happened the previous day at STEM School Highlands Ranch.

The shooting took place exactly a week after a gunman killed two students - including one who charged the assailant - and wounded four at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

The father of Colorado school shooting suspect Maya "Alec" McKinney is an illegal immigrant and serial felon, according to a new report.

The student who police say tackled a gunman during Tuesday's school shooting in Colorado is being remembered as a hero.

Castillo died Tuesday when two teenagers opened fire at the STEM School Highlands Ranch in south suburban Denver.

"How I was feeling in the moment is too disgusting to remember".

News of the shooting came just five months after officials at STEM officials were reportedly warned by an anonymous caller that the school had become a "pressure cooker" of violence, sexual assault, and bullying that was setting the stage for "a repeat of Columbine".

"The concerns expressed by this individual are very serious and need to be looked into to the extent possible".

Her letter said allegations against the school's administration were investigated but could not be substantiated.

The school, represented by conservative lawyer Barry Arrington, sued the anonymous caller for defamation on January 17, Colorado Public Radio (CPR) reported. Instead, the school signed a contract with a private security firm.

Castillo's parents said his heroic actions were unsurprising.

"While STEM took the allegations seriously, our investigation revealed no evidence to support any of the allegations raised in the anonymous complaint", according to an email to TheDCNF Thursday.

Friends of both suspects contacted by Colorado Community Media either did not respond or declined to comment.

Giasolli said it began when one of the suspects arrived late to class on Tuesday.

"They lost", he said of the shooters. Law enforcement apprehended the shooters. Most of the time though, people don't speak up because they're afraid they're going to seem paranoid.
