CENTENNIAL, Colo. — The suspected gunman is dead after a shooting at Arapahoe High School, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

Two students were shot. One is in serious condition, the other has minor injuries.

Robinson said he believes the suspect died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Hundreds of students were evacuated safely. More are currently being evacuated.

The Sheriff's office tweeted that parents should go to Shepherd of the Hills Church at 7691 South University Blvd.

A witness told 7NEWS she saw police in riot gear at the scene.
