Six teenagers have been injured following a mass shooting near a Colorado school

The students aged between 14 to 18 have been hospitalised, after being taken to a Colorado emergency medical centre for treatment.

Authorities believe multiple shooters may have been involved in the incident with all suspects remaining on the run.

The students were shot at Nome Park in the suburb of Aurora, just north of Aurora Central High School, where officials set up a secure perimeter and classes were closed for the day.

Speaking at a press conference shortly after the shooting, Aurora Police Chief Vanessa Wilson said multiple suspects had fled the scene on foot and by car, with gang units investigating.

“While all were seriously wounded, their injuries are not believed to be threatening”

ChIf wilson stated.

“I have one child in emergency surgery. I want to thank the school resources officers that were first on scene.

“They applied life saving measures in the form of a tourniquet for the individual that’s in surgery now.”

She said it was “very concerning” not only for the city of Aurora, but the nation as a whole.

Drone footage showed the heavy police presence on the scene, with officers walking through the park to seek evidence.

Colorado no stranger to gun crime

Colorado has become a state where gun crime continues to rise. The state has suffered two of the most infamous mass shootings in United States history.

In 1999, two boys shot and killed 12 classmates and a teacher at Columbine High School.

Then in 2012, a heavily armed man stormed a movie theatre in Aurora, murdering 12. The gunman is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

In March of this year, a gunman killed 10 people, including a police officer at a grocery store in Boulder County, 50 kilometres outside Denver.

Aurora Police Chief Vanessa Wilson says she is “hoping that there’s kids out there that know why this happened. That know what this situation was and can actually share information with us,”

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured
