The Associated Press

A student gunman at a suburban Denver high school apparently left two Molotov cocktails behind.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson says one of the devices found Friday at Arapahoe High School detonated but the other didn't.

Robinson says the shooter wounded two students at Arapahoe High School in Centennial before apparently killing himself. One of them was hospitalized in serious condition. The other had minor gunshot-related injuries.

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