7 May 2019 | Five of the seven students injured in the K-12 school shooting that took place in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, earlier today were taken to nearby Littleton Adventist Hospital for treatment.

One student was killed and seven were injured in the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch, just south of Denver.

Two male shooters attacked the school, one an adult, the other a minor. The deceased student was an 18-year-old male.

According to Time.com, three of the students brought to Littleton Adventist Hospital have already been discharged but two remain in critical condition.

The two other injured students were brought to Sky Ridge Medical Center and are in stable condition.

The shooters entered the school and began shooting at approximately 2 p.m. today. Police responded very quickly as there is a police substation a block away from the school.

The school is about eight miles from Columbine High School, the scene of the April 20, 1999, shooting in which 12 students perished.

Littleton Adventist Hospital is based in Littleton, Colorado, just south of Denver. It is part of Centura Health, which is managed under a joint operating agreement formed in 2006 between Adventist Health System and Catholic Health Initiatives. Centura Health operates facilities in Colorado and Kansas.
