Colo. school shooter sen­tenced to life

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/WORLD -

A teenager who launched a fa­tal shoot­ing at­tack on his sub­ur­ban Den­ver school was sen­tenced on Fri­day to life in prison plus 38 years with the pos­si­bil­ity of pa­role af­ter about two decades be­hind bars.

Alec McKin­ney, who with a class­mate last year at­tacked the other stu­dents, said he wanted them to ex­pe­ri­ence trauma like that he had ex­pe­ri­enced.

McKin­ney, 17, apol­o­gized to the par­ents of Ken­drick Castillo, who was killed as he tack­led one of the gun­men in the at­tack at STEM School High­lands Ranch, and to the eight other stu­dents wounded in the at­tack, as well as those trau­ma­tized by it.
