Park County Sheriff's Department and SWAT team members surround the Fitzsimmons Middle School entrance adjacent to Platte Canyon High School during a hostage standoff at the school Wednesday. Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener said an unidentified gunman who took students at Platte Canyon High School in Bailey hostage today shot one of the hostages before shooting himself at about 3:30 p.m. as officers stormed the classroom where he was holding the two students hostage. The other hostage in the room escaped injury. The wounded girl was flown to St. Anthony's Central Hospital where she was rushed to emergency surgery, said spokeswoman Bev Lilly. As many as six students had been held hostage during the standoff but a number were released during the course of the day until negotiations with the gunman broke down and SWAT rushed the school.
