In a developing story, authorities in the Denver-area were forced to cancel classes for Wednesday after receiving threats from a woman obsessed with the 1999 Columbine massacre. A manhunt is underway to find the woman.


Multiple Denver-area school districts canceled classes for Wednesday after a Miami woman “infatuated” with the 1999 Columbine shooting threatened the schools. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI, the woman traveled to Colorado and purchased firearms earlier this week.


Sol Pais, 18, has a history of making “concerning” comments. She arrived in Colorado from Miami on Monday. The FBI revealed she then bought a pump action shotgun and ammunition.

The FBI identified the woman as a potential threat and alerted local authorities. Under the advice of the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, schools in the area have canceled their classes for Wednesday.

Affected schools included: Denver Public Schools, Douglas County School District, 27J Schools, Adams 12 Five Star, Aurora Public Schools, Englewood Schools, Jefferson County Schools, and Cherry Creek Schools.


Authorities revealed that Pais was last seen in the foothills of Denver. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office along with multiple agencies have launched a massive manhunt.

No warrant has been issued for her arrest as yet however the FBI reported that district attorneys and the U.S. attorney’s office are discussing appropriate charges.


The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice on Tuesday describing Pais as "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting." The alert also instructed law enforcement who find her to detain her and evaluate her mental health.

More than 20 schools including Columbine were placed on lockouts on Tuesday. The action meant classes were conducted as usual, but entry and exits were heavily restricted for nearly three hours.

Authorities revealed that Pais has not singled out a particular school as yet. However, they revealed she has an "infatuation" with Columbine and the Columbine shooters. The threat comes just days ahead of the 1999 massacre's 20th anniversary.
