Almost 2,000 people turned out Wednesday for a memorial service to honor the Colorado teenager who was killed while charging one of the two gunmen who opened fire inside a high school and shot nine people just days before graduation. Catherine Fanaro, founder of the Colorado Jeep Girls, said as soon as word got out about Kendrick's love of Jeeps, drivers of the vehicle sprung to action.

The two are being held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, and prosecutors are expected to soon reveal if they are going to charge McKinney as an adult.

"It's not right that school is no longer a safe place", said parent Marni McMillan.

Erickson looked toward the judge while attorneys discussed the case.

Erickson's defense attorneys said in court that they have yet to see any of the evidence in the case, and waived the requirement for a preliminary hearing within 35 days.

Meanwhile, the celebration of Kendrick Castillo's life was to be held at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch.

Appearing in court on Wednesday, prosecutors identified Alec McKinney as the previously unnamed juvenile accused of going on a rampage at the Highlands Ranch STEM School, alongside his alleged 18-year-old accomplice, Devon Erickson. They were arrested at the school.

Both teenagers were each facing a range of charges including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, arson and theft.

The judge denied the prosecution's request to make some of the documents public but said she would address the issue at the next hearing on June 7.

McKinney appeared in court after Erickson.

"It would have been easy for them to say, 'I'm not going to make it to court today because in less than two hours we're going to have a memorial service for our son, '" District Attorney George Brauchler said of Castillo's parents. Brauchler would not provide details on the investigation of the security guard.

Joshua Jones who was wounded while trying to stop a gunman involved in the attack on the STEM School Highlands Ranch last week, speaks during a news conference as his mother, Lorie, looks on.

A student who helped thwart a shooting at a suburban U.S. high school in Denver, Colarado says he was still pinning one of the attackers down when he made a decision to call one of the most important people in his life - his mother.

"He said, 'Mom this has happened, we've been.I've been involved in a school shooting, I was shot a couple of times in the leg, but I'm okay, '" she told reporters.

All the injured students have been released from hospitals.

The attack occurred less than a month after the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre in nearby Littleton, in which two students shot 13 people to death before committing suicide.
