The latest Gun Free Zone attack comes from Colorado:

Transgender Denver high school student is identified as 'second gunman who killed one classmate and wounded eight', as friends refer to him as a 'tortured soul' who 'didn't get the support he needed'

Alec McKinney has been accused of killing one classmate, injuring eight others
Allegedly stormed STEM School Highlands Ranch with friend Devon Erickson
Authorities have been describing McKinney as a female juvenile named Maya
But friends confirmed McKinney identifies as male and prefers to be called 'Alec'
When McKinney appeared in court, attorney said he preferred the pronoun 'he'
Friends have taken to McKinney's Instagram to reveal he was suffering from mental health issues and 'desperately needed' help

The second gunman who allegedly opened fire on classmates at a Denver High School appeared in court on Wednesday.

Alec McKinney has been accused of killing one classmate and injuring eight others alongside his friend Devon Erickson at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday.

Authorities described McKinney as a female juvenile named Maya after initially identifying the second gunman as a boy based on appearances.

But friends of McKinney have confirmed that the teen identified as a male and preferred to be called 'Alec'.


Not getting a great deal of play in the media, wonder why (*strokes chin*)...
Either way, it's on Trump for not keeping his promise of eradicating gun free zones on the federal level.
Teacher friends tell me that May is a month where the kids go bonkers...weather, end of year, senioritis, call it what you will...these stories will become more prevalent.

Devon Erickson, an 18-year-old high school student who has worked as a youth actor in Colorado, was identified by authorities as one of the two shooters accused of wounding nine students in a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County. One of those students, 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, died heroically in the attack after confronting one of the shooters.

In court for the first time on May 8, Erickson bowed his head, his purple hair dangling over his face. He’s facing more than two dozen charges.


This article is more than you'll ever care to know about shooter one.
While nobody is saying it explicitly...um...what drugs were these obviously mentally unstable kids on?
Somebody look up SSRIs and mass shootings...

Douglas County District Judge Theresa Slade has put the charges along with the entire case file under seal, banning the public from seeing it. Both teenagers were each facing a range of charges including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, arson and theft.

McKinney was charged as an adult, prosecutors said.

Both Erickson and McKinney were being held without bond.

Denver’s ABC affiliate television station has reported that the two pistols used in the attack were stolen from the home of Erickson, whose parents had purchased the guns legally. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment.


Sealed it! No more media coverage for you! Narrative Protected!

Judge Slade (NSFW Language) needs to be the sequel (complete with flamethrowers)!
