A dear friend lives in Colorado but teaches at the Aztec high school where a shooter came in and blasted away last Thursday. He'd been planning it for months, according to law enforcement. He dressed like a student, concealed the firearms in his clothes, and walked in to a bathroom where he unpacked all the weaponry. A very unlucky student got a hall pass to the bathroom and paid for it with his life. Even unluckier, a teacher heard the shots and sent a student to what he thought would be a safer location, but she crossed paths with the shooter. The teacher is distraught, and Chris doesn't know if he'll return to the classroom.

The shooter had previously been investigated by the FBI for online comments about planning a mass shooting. After he shot the second student, he started down the hall and fired into unlocked classrooms. My everlasting appreciation goes out to Thomas Hill, a custodian who ran down the halls yelling "Active shooter! Lockdown!" Thanks to Hill, teachers locked their doors and huddled the students into corners and closets. Chris does not have an 8 a.m. class, so she locked her door and huddled in the corner by herself. She heard three shots, but there were many more than that. Law enforcement was on scene immediately, less than two minutes. Apparently the shooter turned a weapon on himself as soon as he realized officers were there, but I don't know how long that took. Administration has not set a date to resume classes. I assume they're repairing the damaged classrooms, but I don't know that either.

Please think good thoughts for everyone connected with the school.

Horrible, but it seems that it could have been so much worse. Mr. Hill seems is a true hero. Hopefully your friend can find peace with what happened and can move on with his life.

Chris is a she/her.

The subject of my "hopefully" comment was for the teacher who does not know if "he'll" return or not. What I missed was the distraught teacher was not the friend Chris. But whatever.
