credible threats
April 16, 2019

The FBI is searching for an 18-year-old woman who traveled to Colorado and made a "credible threat" against at least 20 schools, including Columbine High School.

Authorities identified the suspect as Sol Pais, and described her as being "infatuated" with the Columbine school shooting. She is "armed and extremely dangerous," police said, and was last seen in the foothills of Jefferson County, wearing a black T-shirt, black boots, and camouflage pants. Several schools were put on lockdown Tuesday, but the students have all since been excused for the day. There will be extra security on the affected campuses, starting Wednesday.

Saturday is the 20th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School, which left 13 people dead and 24 wounded. Jefferson County Sheriff spokesman Mike Taplin told The Washington Post that "getting threats in not out of the normal for Columbine High School," and Jefferson County Public Schools has reported a surge in threatening email and telephone messages.
