Kendrick Castillo’s parents refuse settlement money in push to make STEM School shooting records public

The Denver Post: The parents of Kendrick Castillo, the student killed in the 2019 shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch, have refused to accept a $387,000 payout from the school as they push to make more information about the attack public.

Maria and John Castillo, whose 18-year-old son was hailed as a hero for rushing one of the shooters, have not accepted the settlement money in a civil lawsuit they brought against STEM School, their attorney, Dan Caplis, said Monday.

The parents hope refusing the funds will help them in a fight with the school over releasing more information about the May 7, 2019, school shooting that also injured eight others.
