Students leave Columbine High School on Tuesday

Pais traveled to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"She can, please, come home". "There may be some connection to Columbine but it wasn't a specific directed threat towards Columbine".

The school, as well as 20 others around the Denver area in Colorado, were placed into lockdown by police about 1.40pm local time today due to a "credible threat".

He said he had no other information. "We will have extra safety and security staff on site at all schools affected", Jefferson County Public Schools said. They called her "extremely unsafe".

Authorities issued a security warning to schools throughout the Denver area late on Tuesday.

At least one school district heeded the advice. Aurora Public Schools tweeted that students were being released in a "controlled manner", and additional security was put in place throughout the district as a precaution.

The 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting is this Saturday.

Colorado authorities are searching for a woman they say is "infatuated" with the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and made threats to schools in the Denver metropolitan area. She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, camouflage trousers and black boots and was last seen in the Jefferson County foothills. "I think she's going to be OK", the man said. She was last spotted "in the foothills of Jefferson County" and was wearing a black t-shirt, camouflage trousers and black boots, officials said.

Earlier, school officials said the doors were locked but classes were continuing during the lockdown.

Two hours after announcing the lockouts, the school system reported that all students and staff were safe, adding that students would be released from the schools and buses would run on their normal schedule, though some may be slightly delayed. Multiple schools are on lockout in Columbine area & Mountains.

Jenny Fulton, another sheriff's spokesperson, said the FBI was investigating the apparent threat.

The lockdowns come just days before the 20th anniversary of a mass shooting at the school that killed 12 students and a teacher. Columbine High School is also located there.

Earlier Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office issued a warning, calling the woman they identified as Sol Pais, 18 of Florida, as "extremely unsafe".

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said deputies were posted at the schools involved.

Columbine survivors acknowledge how different things are for their own kids twenty years after they experienced the horror of gunfire in the classroom.
