$1M cash bail set for suspect in Colorado school shooting

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) -- A judge has set bail at $1 million in cash for a man suspected of wounding two students during a shooting spree outside a suburban Denver middle school.

Thirty-two-year-old Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood said nothing during the brief hearing Wednesday. He faces two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

He appeared by video hookup from the jail, wearing an orange inmate jumpsuit with his dark, shoulder-length hair hanging loose.

Investigators say Eastwood began firing at students with a hunting rifle outside Deer Trail Middle School in Littleton as teenagers were leaving for the day on Wednesday.

David Benke, a math teacher at Deer Trail, tackled him and pinned him to the ground with the help of another teacher.
