Two suspects are in custody after multiple students were shot at a Colorado school.

A third suspect is at large and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the situation is still active and unstable.

The sheriff's office received reports that shots were fired at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch and multiple students have been injured, according to the sheriff's office.

The STEM school has 1800 students aged from kindergarten through to 12th grade.

Emergency services are treating the people shot at the school and the number of students injured and the extent of the injuries is still unknown.

Fox News says that classrooms are being cleared at the school one by one.

One student at the school told Fox News that the shooting "was completely out of the blue".

Some students had fled the school themselves and sheriffs were working to reunite them with their parents.
