The FBI’s Denver office and local law enforcement are searching for a woman who allegedly made threats against schools in the Denver metro area Tuesday.

According to the FBI, Sol Pais is infatuated with the Columbine massacre and purchased a gun in the Denver area.

At a press conference held at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at FBI Denver headquarters, authorities revealed new details about the search.

According to Dean Phillips, the special-agent-in-charge of the FBI in Denver, the Miami FBI office alerted the Denver office about the threat of Pais.

Phillips said Pais flew to Denver Monday night. She then bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition in the Denver area and went to the foothills of Jefferson County.

Those actions promoted the FBI to consider Pais a credible threat.

Phillips said the FBI is working with law enforcement throughout the metro area and that they are tracking a significant number of leads.

“This has become a massive manhunt,” said Phillips.

Pais is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Voter records show Pais is from Surfside, Florida in the Miami area.

Authorities described Pais as a white female who is 18 years old. She is about 5 feet 5 inches tall. She was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots
