CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a suburban Denver student shot at least one other student at a high school Friday before he apparently turned the gun on himself.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the student was wounded when he confronted the gunman at Arapahoe High School in Centennial.
He said officers found another injured student while securing the school.
Littleton Adventist Hospital spokesman Jason Dunkel said a student was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Students were seen walking toward the school's running track with their hands in the air. Television footage showed students being patted down.
The school is about 8 miles east of Columbine High School in Littleton, where two teenage shooters killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves in 1999.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - State Sen. Ryan McKenna has been appointed director of the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
Gov. Jay Nixon announced McKenna's appointment Friday and said it will take effect next Wednesday.
Like Nixon, McKenna is a Democrat from Jefferson County. McKenna served eight years in the House before winning election to the Senate in 2006. He would have been prohibited by term limits from seeking re-election next year.
The labor department has been under an acting director since March, when director Larry Rebman was appointed by Nixon to new job as an administrative judge. The department's former employment security director, Gracia Backer, also was replaced in March. She has alleged discrimination by Rebman, who has denied that.
Nixon on Friday appointed Nia Ray as the department's employment security director.
CHICAGO (AP) - Federal judges considering an appeal by imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich have pressed lawyers to differentiate between run-of-the-mill politics and political corruption.
The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals panel repeatedly pressed a prosecutor during Friday's hour-long hearing to explain how Blagojevich's actions were criminal.
Prosecutor Debra Bonamici explained that Blagojevich never sought favors to help his political causes but always to profit himself personal.
A jury convicted Blagojevich of wide-ranging charges, including for trying to profit from his power to name someone to President Barack Obama's old Senate seat.
The defense wants his convictions overturned, arguing he was engaging in legal "political horse trading."
Blagojevich is serving a 14-year prison sentence.
