Five teenagers were hospitalized Monday after a shooting near a high school in Colorado, according to local police. Authorities said the shooting occurred at a local park north of Aurora Central High School.

Authorities said “multiple people” were shot and five teens between the ages of 14 and 17 have been hospitalized, but they did not provide any additional information on the teens’ condition.
