ST. GEORGE — Officials are investigating an incident that led to the discovery of bullet holes in the side of El Capitan High School in Colorado City, Arizona last week.

Colorado City Marshals Sgt. Mark Gower told St. George News that officials believe the incident occurred between 6 p.m. Thursday evening and time of reporting Friday morning.

Video surveillance is still being processed; however, Gower said the school might not have caught the incident on camera. Officials have interviewed a witness to the incident who reported hearing the shots from a distance.

Officers have discovered the caliber of the weapon involved but are not releasing this information to the public at this time.

“It was definitely targeted, intentional, just based off of our investigation and eyewitness,” Gower said.
