Actions before Columbine attack being investigatedOfficials investigating actions before hammer attack on 2 Columbine High School students
LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) ' A teenage girl's actions before she allegedly attacked two students with a hammer at Columbine High School are under investigation.
Jefferson County School District security director John McDonald says authorities are trying to gather additional details, including whom the 14-year-old may have spoken with before the attack.
Sheriff's officials say the girl targeted a 15-year-old girl in a bathroom hallway Monday morning. A 16-year-old boy saw the attack and was injured while stopping it. Both are expected to recover.
This is the first assault with a weapon at the Littleton, Colo., school since it was the site of one of the worst school attacks in U.S. history. Two students opened fire on April 20, 1999, killing 12 classmates, a teacher and wounding 26 others before they killed themselves.
