A Colorado sheriff says a suspect in a Denver-area high school shooting has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Friday one other student also was wounded at Arapahoe High School in Centennial.

State division of emergency management spokeswoman Micki Trost said Friday that her director went to Arapahoe High School in Centennial. There weren't any more immediate details.

Police were outside the school, and students were seen milling around on sidewalks.

The school is about 8 miles east of Columbine High School in Littleton, where two teenage shooters killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves in 1999.
