Colorado - Two Columbine High School pupils in Colorado have been injured after being attacked with a hammer at school.

The Littleton school was the scene of one of the worst school attacks in US history in 1999, when pupils Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold opened fire and killed 12 classmates and a teacher.

Jefferson County sheriff's spokesperson Jacki Kelley says the hammer attack occurred on Monday morning.

A 14-year-old suspect was arrested and faces assault charges.

Kelley says the condition of the two pupils was not known.

    I thought it was the EVIL guns that cause people to go out and hurt each other..... now we have evil hammers.... oops lets ban them !

      This was all because of GTA in any case. We should ban that, because it literally turns everyone who plays it into a hammer/axe/chainsaw/MP5/RPG killer.

    Now all we have to wait for is that self-serving, fat-chop Michael Moorer to bring out `Smashing For Columbine'.

    Murder, slaughter, violence etc, is just a game and full on entertainment now expanded to horrific computer games. What these kids are doing to each other is seen as an extension of this FUN!

      Man, I hope you're being sarcastic. Otherwise, get a grip, get clued up and stop blaming the latest form of entertainment for something you can't understand. Used to be that movies made us all crazy criminals. Or comics. Or metal music. Or.... oh just give it up.
