School reopens for counseling after shooting

Classes at Deer Creek Middle School in suburban Denver are scheduled to resume Monday, six days after a gunman shot and wounded to students in front of the school.

Faculty and staff on Friday greeted parents and students outside the school who were returning to reconnect with teachers and pick up belongings left behind after Tuesday's shootings. Counselors
were available.

One of the injured students, 13-year-old Reagan Weber, was there with her parents visiting with classmates and the teacher, Jacqueline Adkins, who sheltered her in her classroom immediately after the shooting.

The other student wounded in Tuesday's attack is hospitalized in good condition with rib and lung injuries.

Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Authorities have not determined a motive.
