Suspected juvenile school shooting co-conspirator is transgender, identifies as a male

One of the suspected Colorado school shooting suspects identifies as a male despite the fact that he was born a female.

(INTELLIHUB) — An unnamed juvenile thought to be involved with the recent STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting incident was born a female but now identifies as a male.

The juvenile who now identifies as a male was taken into police custody after he and his partner Devon Erickson, 18, opened-fire on classmates with handguns killing 1 and wounding 9 others.

The incident took place on campus Tuesday just 8 miles away from where the infamous Columbine shooting took place some 20-years ago.

The suspects appeared in court on Wednesday after being charged with nearly 30 counts, including murder.

The firearms were transported onto campus in a guitar case despite the school’s heavy security presence.
