Father: Suspect may have contacted students online

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - Deer Creek Middle School is scheduled to reopen for classes on Monday.

The school just miles from Columbine High School was the scene of a shooting Tuesday that left two students injured.

Student Reagan Weber was treated at a hospital and released. The mother of the other victim, Matt Thieu, said he is doing well at a hospital.

Police seized photos of youths who appear to be in their teens from the room of the suspect, 32-year-old Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood. His father speculated that his son may have had online contact with students at the school before the attack.

Jefferson County sheriff's investigators are puzzling over why Eastwood may have targeted the school. They are interviewing students and parents.
