A SHOOTING near a Colorado high school left five teenagers hospitalized as police rushed to secure the campus.
Authorities responded to a shooting at Nome Park – steps away from Aurora Central High School – in Colorado, just before 1pm local time.
The Aurora Police Department confirmed five teenagers were hospitalized after the shooting.
According to police, the victims' ages range from 14-17.
Authorities did not immediately release the condition of the victims.
The APD confirmed Central High School was on a secure perimeter and not on lockdown, as previously reported.
Police said they are still searching for a suspect.
Video from the scene showed heavy police presence and emergency vehicles in the parking lot of the school.
According to Fox 31, the shooting is the latest act of violence at the park, where authorities have responded to three aggravated assaults this year, including one that was gun-related.
Nome Park was the location of a gang-related shooting in 2019, in which a teenager was charged with attempted first-degree murder, per the outlet.
