CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Authorities say they have found a possible Molotov cocktail at the scene of a school shooting in Colorado.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Friday that investigators are examining the device.

Robinson says the shooter shot two others at Arapahoe High School in Centennial before apparently killing himself on Friday

The sheriff says the shooter was armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name when he approached the school.

Robinson says the teacher immediately left the school when he learned the student was looking for him.

Robinson says the shooter then shot two students, one of whom is in serious condition at a hospital. The other is also hospitalized with a minor gunshot wound.
