The FBI and ATF are helping local law enforcement investigate a mass shooting at a Colorado school that left one student dead and eight others injured Tuesday.

Two shooting suspects – a female juvenile and 18-year-old man – were arrested after authorities said they opened fire in two separate classrooms shortly before 2 p.m. at STEM School Highlands Ranch, a charter school just eight miles from Columbine High School. Police identified the adult suspect as Devon Erickson.

The victims were ages 15 and older, and the male student who died was 18 years old, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Several of the victims were in critical condition, NBC News reports.

The FBI and ATF will help execute search warrants and determine a motive.

Last month, the STEM school was among several schools that canceled classes while the FBI searched for a woman “infatuated” with the Columbine shootings. She was later found dead from an apparent suicide.

Denver-area public schools were closed Wednesday as the FBI launched a manhunt for a young woman whom authorities described as armed, “extremely dangerous” and “infatuated” with the Columbine school massacre.

Authorities said the 18-year-old woman, Sol Pais, made “credible threats” against Denver-area schools in the days before the 20th anniversary of the April 20, 1999, attack that killed 12 students and one teacher.

The FBI said the woman “made threats to commit an act of violence in the Denver metropolitan area,” the Associated Press reports.

Authorities said the Florida woman bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition and flew to Colorado on Monday night. She was last seen in Jefferson County near Columbine wearing camouflage pants, a black T-shirt and black boots.

The FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday to police to be on the look out for her and set up a tip line.

“This has become a massive manhunt … and every law enforcement agency is participating and helping in this effort,” Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the FBI in Denver, said late Tuesday night.
