STEM School shooting affidavit explaining case evidence remains hidden from public

The Denver Post: Dozens of parents, teachers and students packed a courtroom Friday morning for a brief hearing for one of the suspects in the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting.

Douglas County District Court Judge Theresa Slade scheduled a preliminary hearing for the suspect, 18-year-old Devon Erickson, for September. In the meantime, Erickson’s attorneys will have to decipher the thousands of pages of evidence and hours of video the prosecution has given them.

Slade did not address the suppression of the case file, which has remained hidden from the public since two students at the school were arrested in connection with the shooting.

Slade will rule on the suppression in the near future, 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler told reporters after the hearing. He didn’t have an estimate when that could happen.

“There are some other things the court needs to rule on before it can take up that issue,” he said.
