    All schools in the Littleton school district are on lockdown after shots were fired at Arapahoe High School, south of Denver. No suspects in custody. 9News says two have been injured and it's an "active shooter situation."

    Isn't Centennial relatively close to Columbine and also the theater shooting in Aurora?

    One day short of the Sandy Hook anniversary.

    Columbine is eight miles to the west of Arapahoe High School.

    Fox News just said it's in the same school district as Columbine. No, it's not. Arapahoe High School is in the Littleton school district, Columbine is in the Jefferson County school district.

    The Aurora theater is probably about 15 miles away to the northeast.

    Law enforcement: The shooter is dead by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

    I was watching CNN, which was picking up a Denver station. The Denver anchor said NBC was reporting the shooter was "down" and no longer a threat. CNN quickly dumped out of the fee, the CNN anchor said something about that information not being confirmed.

    Then CNN joined the news conference where the PD said the shooter was dead.

    Not to sound crass, but this incident is going to make for some unique front pages, especially in the northeast, where I'm sure they have Newtown anniversary stories planned. Glad to hear that neither of the victims were killed, although the reports are that one is in critical condition.

    And since Sandy Hook was on a Friday, this is the one-year anniversary in a way.
