Colorado – Two Columbine High School pupils were injured in a hammer attack 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 yesterday morning.

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

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