DENVER POLICE DePARTMENT
INTER-DEPARTMENT
CORRESPONOENCE

TO: District Four Detectives

FROM: John M. Lietz 79042, District Four Station

DATE: April 20, 1999

SUBJECT: Shooting at Columbine High School in Jefferson County

On this date, at about 1100 hours, while working as the District Clerk, I received a call from
Matthew Depew, Officer Wayne Depew's son. He stated he was at Columbine High School and
someone was shooting all the students. I knew thisschoolwas in JeffersonCounty so I told him to
hangup and call 911 to get emergency help on the way. I ran to my desk phone to call our dispatch
and received a call back from MatthewDepew statingthat the phones in the school could not call
911 and he could not call for emergency help. I then kept Matthew on the phone in one ear and
grabbed my other phone calling 911 myself. I directed Denver 911 to transfer me to Jefferson
County 9I I. While doing this Matthew Depew stated he and several other students were in the
cafeteria areaand all unknown numberofgunmen wereshooting students in the cafeteriarightat that
moment. I couldhearshotsbeing fired in the back ground. I havea daughter that is a student at the
school so I knew some of the layout of the school. I asked Depewwhere he was in the cafeteria,
since there are pay phones only at the doorways to the cafeteria. [was told that Depew and the
group he was with had run to the rear kitchen area.

I tried to pass information from Depew to JeffersonCounty over the phone as the suspects were
continuingto shoot people. Matthew Depew remained remarkably calm and told me that he and
about 20 others (later found to be eighteen total) had run into the office in the kitchen and were
hiding there. He gave me a physical description of the one suspect he had seen. I gave this
information to JeffersonCounty and heard it passedover their police radio for their officers in the
field to use. Over the next two to two a half hours I spoke with Depew and kept him on the phone
with me whileI spokewithJefferson CountyCommunication Manger Randy Smith and Lieutenant
JeffShrader. During the two hours Depewkept me appraised of the suspect's movements in the area
and kept the other seventeen people with him calm. Several times the suspectts) carne to the door
and tried to shoot these people 3.'1d I could hear the suspectts) pounding and shooting at the door,
unsure if anyonewas inside. I had Depew talk to everyone constantly in a soft voice to keep them
quiet and calm. [had Depew describethe office he was in so I could direct some sort of barricade
to be placed against the door. He described an officewith one desk with a computer on it and three
chairs. At first, aboutsix peoplewereholdingthe door closed withtheirfeet, and said the office was
filled withpeopleso there was not a lot ofroom to move around. I asked Depewto try and have a
chairplacedagainst the door knob since it could not be locked. Depewtold me that the group did
find sacks of floor, etc. to put against the door. ! was told that about two hundred pounds of items

JC-001.oo2829
were put againstthe door. [coordinated with JeffersonCountyto make sure people gaining entry
to the room where these victims were hidingwere police. The suspects attempted entry numerous
times and shots were tired in the area and possibly into this room. At one point [ could hear the
suspectts) shooting in volleys of four withwhatDepew described as a shotgun. It sounded as though
the suspecus) were walking around the cafeteria "re-shooting" anyone down to ensure they were
dead. The grouping of rapidshots were as though all fourseriesof shots were directed at onetarget.
The suspects were so close to Depew and his group that I could hear the suspect(s) loading and
"racking" their weapon overthe phone. Depew wasvery quietly descn"bing to me that the suspects
were 'hooting anythingthat movedor made noise. At that point Depew was certain he was going
to die and askedme to tellhis father he loved him. I constantly had Depew maintain control and told
him that if the gunmen cameinto the room everyone should remainquietami not talk. I told Depew
to holdthe phoneup andask the gunmen to speakto me If they carne inside. I also directedDepew
to plananattackIf necessary and to have several students try and bitthe gunman with chairs if it was
apparent he was going to shoot. Depew volunteered to be the personto try and get the shotgun if
it came to that.

Depew helped me keepeveryone in his groupquietand down fortheemire time, even though when
whatwaslaterlearnedto be gunsand bombs were going off around them, twoof Depew's group got
so scared theytried to run out for help. At onepointanother person tried to get in the doorbut it was
unknown whetherthis person was a suspector not. He gave his nameto Depew but even Depew
realized thatstudentmight be a hostage of the gunmen and Depewmaintained control of the group
and did not move the barricades to allow this personinside.

During the timethe SWAT teams were moving in, the mood in room became very difficult withtwo
mentally challenged members of the group trying to yell out and get outof the room. Again, Depew
helped direct his group to maintain order until they could be removed safely. Depew constantly
followed my directions to have the group breathe easy and remainquiet, no matter what happened.
At several points when it sounded like the suspecns) were not in the areaDepew made the group
hush up when they felt the situationwas over and stoned talking loud, laughing, etc. Due to the
knowledge Depew learned from his father, a former DenverSWAT member, Depew was able to
describe to the groupwhat would be happening withthe policeand why it was taking so long to gel
the group to safety. I added information for Depew as needed but he maintained a professional
manner at all times. At one point,early on in the situation, Depew spoke withtwo of the groupthat
are friends of my daughterto answer my questions aboutwhether mydaughter had been shot. That
allowed all of us to work together with a common bond to survive that continued throughout the
incident.

JeffersonCounty Communications assisted me during the entire time and gave me the suggestion
to getphone numbers ofthe eighteen people'sfamily members so theycould be told everyone was
alright. Thatsuggestion bought me some valuable time and helpedkeepthe group busy and quiet
while officers worked to clear the school. I had already had Depew pass a paper around with
everyone writing down their names and had giventhis information to Jefferson County so I had him
add phone numbers. (I later tried to call everyone's family on the list but only spoke with two or
three. Everyone else had left for the school and could not be reached by phone.) The list I madeof
victims, phone numbersand family names is attached to this letter.

JC.o01· 002830
! feel that Matthew Depew is responsible for saving the lives of himselfand the seventeen people
withhim. by his responsible actions and evenknowing to callDenver Police whenthe phones would
not connect him to 911. If Denver Police can give the lifesaving award to Matthew Depew there is
no doubt in my mind, .....bile listening to the suspect(s) shoot into the room, that he deserves that
award, eighteen timesover.

FBI CASE 174A DN-57419

WITNESS CONrROL NlJMBER 1913

JCSD CASE 99-7625

Reporting investigator, P.J. Doyle, is a commissioned peace


officer employed by the District Attorney in the First Judicial
District serving Jefferson and Gilpin Counties. I am currently
assigned to assist in interviewing witnesses from Columbine High
School.

On May 3, 1999 I spoke to Suzanne nmn Dewlaney.


DOS: 4-21-58
10605 W. Quarles Ave.
Littleton, CO 80127
303 972-8663

Suzanne works at Columbine High Sohacl in food service in the


cafeteria and had worked there for three months when this incident
occurred.

Suzanne told me the following,

JC.Q01- 002854
1
She got to work at 8: 00 a. lll. She didn't sell propane tanks or
duffle bags. The women who clean, she said, take thi%J,ge out and
clean very well. She saw nothing visible. She said that she
would.n't have seen anything i f it was placed in a box. She said
that she saw nothing unusual. The day started like any other.

She said that she left the kitchen around 9:45 to have lunoh in
the teacher/e lounge. At that time, the kitchen is unlooked., and.
oompletely open. Anyone can have access. There are four boys who
COllle in to help. She didn / t know their names, but said that Linda
Tibljae manages the kitchen and would know the boys. She said that
Linda has already been interviewed. Suzanne said that the boys at''''
usually in the kitohen when the women come back ft'om lunch arcund
10: 30.

The other women are:


Marlene Nederman
303 948-2344

Sue Laine
303 972-2H4

Laverene no other info.

Patty no other info. Was with Suzzane in the store room.

Suzanne said that when she got back, she started getting ready
to serve the kids luneh. The bell rings at 10 minutes after n.
Some kids eome early so they open up a bit early for them.

Suzanne was out by the pillar on the west side of the


cafeteria. (See diagram). Suzanne and Marlene and Sue Laine take
the money. The other four a.re at the serving line.

She said that she didn't know what time it was. Maybe they'd
been serving lunch for 5 or 10 minutes, at the most. Dave Sanders
a.nd about ten boys (she didn't know who they werll) oalllEl running in

2 JC-oO'l·002855
and yelling something like, "They have guns. They're shooting. Get
down." They !:lad come in the west door. Op to this peint, she
hadn't noticed anything different.

she said that she looked to her left. Marlene was still with
her. Marlene said it looked like~ sOmeone had set off ill. smoke bomb.
suzanne thought it was a smoke bomb. She thinks the smoke was
white. She saw the smoke in the senior parking lot from where sne
was standing by the pillar.

Suzzane said that this all happened very fast. As soon as she
and Marlene talked about the "smoke bomb", everyone was getting
under tables. Marlene and suazane and some kids, she doesn't know
who they were, were squatting down by the pillar they'd been
standing by. She said she was literally looking to the west for
someone to come t.hrough, not knowing they were On the OCher side of
the oafeteria. They were the shooters.

Suzanne stated that she heard gun shots. She has heard guns at
a rifle range at summer camp. It didn't sound like rapid machine
gun t.ypes of a gun. It. sounded like a shot gun, and was very loud.
The kids got up in mass and swarmed the stairs, hundreds of chern.
She heard screaming and shooting. At about that point. Marlene and
Suzanne got up and ran to the kitchen through the door close to che
pillar where they were hiding. They took some kids with them to the
kitchen. She thinks maybe five kids. She stood in the doorway of
the storeroom and yelled at kids to come in to the storeroom. She
thought it may have been a senior prank at first. When it sounded
like the shooting was getting closer, the kids ran back and in to
the store room. Suzanne shut the door. After about a minute, she
opened the door abut an inch to peek out and there was smoke. The
cafeteria was filled with smoke. She thought it was white smoke.
When she peeked out, Marlene and some kids were hiding behind some
equipment in the kitchen.

She never saw the shooters.


JC.o01.002856

Suzanne only knew two of 1:he kids that were in the S1:ore room
with her, Ryan and Adam. Ryan's mom is Oee Dee 138-1268. They are
special kids. (Challenged?) She t.hinks t.hey were in the storage
room before she got in there. She said that Ryan was crying and
shaking. Patty held him in her lap the entire time they were in the
room.

Suzanne said that she thought she heard "two hours" of bombs
and shooting. She said that is what it felt like to her.

Suzanne didn't know that the door locked automatically. She


said thaI;. ehe and a male student la.id on the floor and held their
feet on the door.

There is a phone in the storage room. She dialed .911 at least


four times. She couldn't get through. She got a. dial tone and then
nothing. Another hoy, Matthew Depew, said that his dad works for
DPD and has a direct line. Matt called his dad and spoke to another
offioer because his dad wasn't there. She didn't know Matt's name
at the time, but knows it now because ehe saw him on TV. She said
that she and Pa.tty checked the room and made sure that no kids were
left behind. She said that the news made il:: sound like no adults
were there, but she and ~atty stayed until all the kids were out.

suzanne said that she was in the storage room for about t'80
hours. During that time, there was only one mention of anyone
knowing the shooeers or who they were. The storage room is shaped
like an L, She heard a kid say he had seen one of the guys shooting
and the, guy was wearing a trenoh coat. A girl said, "Thae must be
Dylan." Suzzane asked why the girl had said that and the girl said
beoause Dylan wears II trench coat. The girl said that Dylan was II
quiet person. Suzanne did not know the identity of the speakers.

Suzanne said that Matthew, while on the phone to Dl?D, was told
to pass around a piece of paper and everyone wrote their names on it
and Matt gave these names to the offioer on the phone. Then, the
list wa.s passed again for phone numbers. That was done. Suzanne's

JCoOO1· 002851
was the last name on the list. Matt was on the phone relaying phone
numbers to the officer.

During all this, it sounded like there was still shooting and
bombs going off in the cafeteria. It got to the point where Suzzane
oouldn't distinguish between bombs and shot-gun blasts.

The shooters were in the kitchen, shooting up the kitchen,


outside their door. Suzanne, a little before this, noticed
"pop.pcp.pop.· type shooting, and a big blast more like a shot gun
type thing. She said it sounded almost fake. She could feel the
wallS shake.

Suzanne thought they were going to ram eha Cloors open and shoot
them all.

Sl.lzanne prayed to herself. The kids were whimpe:dng, a silent


whimpering. Several people said that they smelled gas. Suzanne
didn't smell gas. A girl student next to Suzzanne asked Suzzane i f
suzanne had any kids. She doesn't know who she was. The kids in
the back were sitting and squateing. The gun powder smell was
awful. Someone said that it was gun powder.

Then, it seemed like the shooting got farther away.

Suzanne doesn't remember when they dragged sugar and flour to


the door to keep out the shooters.

Suzanne said that at least three times while they were in the
room, someone banged on the door to get in. Before the shooting,
Marlene had keys and she started to unlock the door. (This is after
everyone ran to the closet.) No one knew it was Marlene. Suzanne
didn't know i f the shooters had keys. She and students held the
door with their feet. The office on the phone had said not to let
anyone in or to answer if someone talked to them from the other side
of the door.

JC-001.002858

Su?anne heard dragging noises from the refrigerator. She
thought it was the gunmen reloading at first. It ended up being two
janitors.

She said that after the kitohen was shot up, it got quiet.

She said that one time, someone knooked on the door. They said
nothing and she and the kids said nothing.

There was another knock on the door and the boy said his name.
He said one of the girl's namas . He said, 'I kno... you're in
there. " Suzanne said that she thinks the kids indde kne... this kid,
but no one would respond. She said that no one banged on the door
and said, "Let us in. We want: to kill you."

Suzanne thinks that it was 12:45 or 1:00 when Matt relayed that
the SWAT team "'as coming and that there would be cover fire ana to
make sure that everyone was down. Suzanne sa.id that she heard
shooting and explosions from fa.r away.

she said at about 1:1$ she heard the SWAT come in. There was a
lot of noise and a lot of yelling. The door openea and a hand ....s
stuck in. A male voice sa.id, "Denver SWAT. I need eye contact
immediately.' She said the hand was a man's, not a boy's. She
knew they were safe. Suzanne and some kids dragged away tile stuff
they'd put in front of the door. A SWAT man said that girls were to
come out first. They went out in groups of five or three. The SWAT
offioers were aiming :dfles at the ceiling on both sides of the
door. There were some ceiling tiles out. The fire alarm was going
off the whole time.

Suzanne said that they had to hold the person's shirt in front
of them. They went out of the cafeteria to the teacher's lounge.
They lined up on the wall of the teacher's lounge. A SWAT guy was

Dooley, Keni
7560 S. Sheridan Ct.
Littleton, CO.
303/973 -3821

Keni Dooley, C.H.S. student, was in cafeteria.

On April 29, 1999, this investigator met with Keni Dooley at


the residence of Stephanie Duffy, 7309 W. Hampden, If 5203. Present
during the interview was Keni's mother, Debbie Dooley.

Keni advised that she went to the Cafeteria after her fourth
hour science class was over and believed that the time of her
arrival was approximately 11: 12 a.m. She said sbe purchased her
lunch at the school Olgtore Ol and sat down 'with her friends at the
table noted in the attached diagram as RK.R This table was next to
table RLl! where Stephanie Duffy and others were. Keni said that
Brittany Weeden and Brian, whose last name was unknown to her, were
at her table. She stated that after approximately five minutes, she
heard screaming and persons yelling out. "Get down." She said that
many of the students did get down on the floor. She stated that she
looked out a window towards the southwest and saw a student dragging


Ann Marie Hochhalter towards the school building from the area of
the parking lot. She said that the student appeared to be a friend
of Ann Marie's and after that student got her up close to the

1 JC.(I01· 002887

o buHdi", she <h,y 00'" stiar t ed eni " ca nod ",,"
one of the school janitors told her to get down. She said that at
this point, many of the students began to run out of the cafeteria
up the adjacent ·stairs. She stated that she had just began to run
when she heard what she described as gunshots followed by an
explosion' which was "a much bigger noise." She said she then heard
an even bigger explosion followed by another, not as loud as the
previous one.

Keni advised that she then saw two people coming down the
stairs and thought at first that they were police officers. She said
she then immediately recognized them as Eric Harris and Dylan
Klebold. She said Eric was wearing black pants and a white shirt on
which were "splotches of red.' She said he had what looked like an
ammo belt over his shoulder and was holding a long gurl. She said
Dylan was wearing black pants, a bright orange shirt and a black
trench coat, and a hat of some kind. She said he had two guns, one
which looked like a rifle and the other she described as "smaller
than the other." She advised that she heard Eric tell Dylan, "Shoot
over there." She said they were both throwing objects when one of
them said, "take cover." She then heard gunfire, ·pop, pop" and saw a
fire begin in the cafeteria.

Keni said she went out the cafeteria door closest to her table
and ran to the senior parking lot. She said that after some period
of time, she believed she heard the windows being shot out of the
library and said she did not hear anymore shooting after that.

Keni advised that on the day of this incident, she had been
wearing a white Nike T-shirt and baggy jeans.

Investigation continues.
