Colorado detectives have confirmed that the two teenagers who carried out the bloody massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton last year worked alone, a newspaper said. The Denver Post said detectives had checked out at least 4,500 leads, conducted more than 5,000 interviews and examined more than 10,000 pieces of evidence as they probed the April attack that left 15 dead, including the two gunmen, Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17.

The parents of a Colorado high school student who critically wounded a classmate before fatally shooting himself apologized Monday and said they were praying for his victim's recovery. "We are shattered by the tragic events that took place on Friday at Arapahoe High School," Barbara and Mark Pierson said in a statement to local media. Karl Pierson, 18, killed himself with a shotgun blast to the head after storming through Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colo. Officials said he fired several shots while moving through the school, apparently in search of his debate-team coach, who had recently disciplined him. Before shooting himself in the library, he shot Claire Davis in the face, apparently at random, officials said.

The parents of Dylan Klebold, one of the teen-age gunmen responsible for the shooting rampage at Columbine High School, apologized Friday to victims of last year's massacre. "There are no words to convey how sorry we are for the pain that has been brought upon the community as a result of our son's actions," Thomas and Susan Klebold said in a statement. "The pain of others compounds our own as we struggle to live without the son we cherished."

The other day, I dropped off some books at the little library in the neighborhood. I came across it a few weeks ago: a two-shelf hutch set back from the sidewalk, on the edge of someone's property, with a sign urging passers-by to take or leave a book. I love these informal book sites , which seem to be popping up all over ; a friend has one on her street. What they signify is one of the great benefits of reading: not to be alone so much as to become part of a community.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - In a new book, the mother of one of the Columbine High School killers admitted that on that terrible morning, as she realized her son was involved, she prayed he would not emerge alive. “I had a sudden vision of what he might be doing. And so while every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else,” Sue Klebold told author Andrew Solomon, whose book, “Far From The Tree,” explores the family life of atypical children, including those who commit crimes.

A Florida mother was arrested this month for allegedly stabbing her two sons' bullies in the back with box cutters. News reports stated that after calming down an altercation between her sons and a group of boys, the mother reignited the situation and attacked the boys, sending two to the hospital. Last year, a teenage boy posted something nasty and hurtful in response to a teenage girl's Facebook posting. The girl was distraught, contemplated hurting herself and complained to her mother that she had been bullied.

The mother of Columbine killer Dylan Klebold says she has been studying suicide in the decade since the high school massacre but had no idea her son was suicidal until she read his journals after his death. Susan Klebold's essay in next month's issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, is the most detailed response yet from any of the parents of Columbine killers Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. The teenagers killed 12 students and a teacher in the 1999 shooting rampage at Columbine High School in suburban Denver.

It was the "worst-case scenario," according to notes recovered by police in western Oregon. In that plan, according to newly revealed court documents, Grant Acord wrote that he was going to go to his first-period class at West Albany High School, duck out to the parking lot, throw a firebomb and then "cooly state" a line from the movie "Bad Boys II" right before the carnage began: "The Russian Grim Reaper is here. " But Acord, 17, was arrested before carrying out any such plan at the 1,400-student school.

When it comes to events like the recent school shooting in Newtown, Conn., there are knowns, unknowns and, already, mis-knowns. A photograph of Ryan Lanza circulated asserting he was the shooter, when in fact it was his brother, Adam Lanza. Their mother, Nancy Lanza, whom Adam killed, was reported to have been a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary, where the other shootings took place -- but she was not. The story of what happened Friday when 20 children and seven adults were killed has been written and rewritten, and it probably will be rewritten again.

AURORA, Colo. - Facing an audience of thousands gathered to remember victims of the deadly theater shooting here, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper made a strategic choice: He didn't mention the suspect's name. "In my house, we're just going to call him 'suspect A,'" Hickenlooper said. The crowd burst into applause, cheering the governor's effort to join a growing campaign bent on redirecting public attention from the alleged shooter to those who were wounded and killed. PHOTOS: 'Dark Knight Rises' shooting Some experts on mass shootings laud the effort and have even joined in, saying such killers - think Dylan Klebold at Columbine andSeung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech - often hunger for notoriety.
