LITTLETON, Colo. - The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office returned control of Arapahoe High School to the Littleton Public Schools early Monday morning.
Crime scene investigators from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation initiated the forensic examination and evidence collection process on Friday Dec. 13, at about 4 p.m., officials said.
The forensic investigation was completed Saturday at about 8 p.m., but the sheriff’s office said it intentionally held control of the facility until Monday at 6 a.m., in case they needed to examine the scene again.
"A thorough forensic examination of the scene is critical to the responsibility of ensuring that a complete and detailed investigation into the tragic December 13, 2013 shooting is accomplished," officials with sheriff's office said.
The investigation into the shooting continues.
District officials will determine dates and times that students and faculty may recover personal property from the school, the sheriff department said Monday.
Classes at Arapahoe High School will not resume until after the new year.
