COLORADO STUDENTS GROW ANGRY AT VIGIL’S POLITICIZATION, SOME WALK OUT

A group of Colorado students walked out of a vigil held Wednesday for classmate Kendrick Castillo, who died after lunging toward one of the shooters at STEM School Highlands Ranch.

Eight other students were hurt in Tuesday’s shooting, and two teenage suspects are under investigation.

The gymnasium at Highlands Ranch High School was packed with students and community members for a vigil in honor of Castillo. Gun control group Team Enough organized it, according to KRDO.

“This was not a vigil, this was merely a political stunt,” one male student said, KRDO reported.

The state’s Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic state Rep. Jason Crow spoke at the event.
