  • The Latest: Shooting vigil disrupted by upset students

    HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (AP) — The Latest on the shooting at a Colorado school that killed one student and injured eight (all times local):

    9 a.m.
    Organizers of a vigil for victims and survivors of the Colorado school shooting that killed a student and injured eight are apologizing after students complained the event politicized the tragedy and ignored them.

    Wednesday night's vigil was organized by the student arm of the Brady gun control group and included speeches by presidential hopeful Sen. Michael Bennet and U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, both Democrats.

    At one point, someone shouted that students should be allowed to speak and organizers talked with students in a hallway about how to include them.

    Some students chanted and others railed against the media and called for remembering Kendrick Castillo, the student killed while trying to stop one of the gunman Tuesday.

    Students eventually were invited to speak.
