The FBI Denver Division and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s aid in locating a potential credible threat in the Denver metropolitan area in connection to lockouts of Columbine High School and nearly 20 other Jefferson County Public Schools, according to authorities.
The FBI Denver Division and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office are searching for an armed young woman, identified as 18 year-old Sol Pais.
Last night Pais traveled to Colorado and made alleged threats in the Denver metropolitan area.
She is a white female, 18 years old, approximately 5’5″ in height, with brown hair.
She is armed and considered to be extremely dangerous.
She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, camouflage pants, and black boots, in the foothills of Jefferson County.

The threats were credible but not specific, and were not directed to a particular school, according to sheriff’s spokesperson Mike Taplin.
“It’s a credible threat … but she did not make it directly,” said Jenny Fulton, a spokeswoman with the sheriff’s office.
“There may be some connection to Columbine but it wasn’t a specific directed threat towards Columbine.”
Please call the FBI tipline at (303) 630-6227 where your call will be answered immediately if you have seen this individual or have information on her whereabouts.
Do Not Approach – Considered Armed and Extremely dangerous.
The Colorado Department of Education recommended that Denver area schools conduct a “lockout” and controlled release after the alleged threats, early Tuesday.
