WASHINGTON (AP) — One day after winning lopsided House approval, bipartisan legislation to ease across-the-board spending cuts and reduce economy-rattling budget brinkmanship appears likely to command the 60 votes necessary to clear the Senate, officials in both parties said Friday.
The suspect was a student at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, outside Denver, just a few miles from the sites of last year's Aurora movie theater shooting and the 1999 Columbine massacre. "The suspect has been found inside the school and he has deceased as a result of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound," Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told reporters. He said the student had apparently targeted a teacher at the school. It is part of the Littleton school district, to which Columbine High School -- scene of the 1999 shooting by two students which killed 13 -- also belongs.
