2 students shot, 1 man arrested at Deer Creek Middle School
My heart goes out to the parents. I couldn't imagine anything more horrible. I hope Thieu pulls through.The shooting was reported at 3:14 p.m., according to Techmeyer. The students were identified as Reagan Weber and Matt Thieu. Both 8th graders were initially treated at Littleton Adventist Hospital, but Matt was transferred to Children's Hospital where he was listed in critical condition tonight. Reagan was treated in the emergency room at Adventist, then released.
Techmeyer said earlier Tuesday that the children's wounds are not thought to be life-threatening although the 32-year-old man, identified tonight as Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood, was using a "high-powered rifle."
Eastwood has prior arrests for menacing and domestic violence, according to computerized court records.
