High schoolers posing as Columbine shooters suspended

COLUMBIA, Ky. (AP) - Two Kentucky high school students who dressed as the Columbine High School shooters for Halloween have been suspended.

The Adair County High School students went to school Wednesday wearing the costumes. The girls’ outfits resembled the clothes 18-year-old Eric Harris and 17-year-old Dylan Klebold wore when they killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded 26 others before killing themselves in the Colorado school in 1999.

Social media posts showed the two girls re-enacting moments from the shooting, with side-by-side images of them next to actual photos of it.

A statement from County Schools Superintendent Pamela Stephens says the students are suspended pending an investigation.
