On Saturday, police continued their investigation into the latest attack, the third in which troubled gunmen opened fire in crowded places with which the state has had to contend since 1999. Karl Halverson Pierson, 18, apparently frustrated by being removed from the Arapahoe High School debate team and angry at its coach, entered the school building in the Denver suburb of Centennial with a shotgun looking for the teacher.

A month-long nationwide manhunt for a man accused of murdering three people and burning down their home in Colorado ended Saturday night when he was arrested at a motel in Oklahoma, officials said. In his mug shot, Harry Carl Mapps, 59, was bloodied, with cuts on his cheek, head and mouth, after the U.S. Marshals Service, with the help of several other agencies, tracked him to a motel near Interstate 40 in Roland in eastern Oklahoma, not far from the Arkansas border. Officials said the Marshals Service, worried that Mapps might be armed, caught the former long-distance trucker by surprise and took him down quickly at the motel, resulting in superficial injuries.
