DENVER (Reuters) - A young woman described as “infatuated” with the 1999 Columbine High School massacre was sought by the FBI in Colorado on Tuesday while authorities issued a security alert to Columbine and dozens of other Denver-area schools, citing a threat of violence.

The alert came four days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine tragedy, in which two heavily armed teen boys stormed their high school in Littleton, a Denver suburb, and fatally shot 12 classmates and a teacher before committing suicide. At the time it was the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.

On Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office placed Columbine and 21 surrounding schools under a security “lockout,” allowing activities inside to continue as usual but restricting entry and exit at the schools.

The Colorado Department of Public Safety later alerted schools throughout the Denver metropolitan area to the threat, recommending they conduct a “controlled release” of students from classes in the afternoon.

The sheriff’s office said on Twitter that a woman identified as Sol Pais, 18, was being sought by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and sheriff’s deputies in connection with the case. It said she was armed and “considered to be extremely dangerous.”
