Emily Ruth Stepp, date of birth March 14, 1981, 6297
South Gray Court, Littleton, Colorado 80123, telephone number
(303) 347-9593, was interviewed at her home. After being advised
of the identity of the interviewing agent and the nature of the
interview, Stepp furnished the following information:
Stepp is a Senior at Columbine High School. Her first
class of the day is during first period which runs from 7:30 a.m.
to 8:20 a.m. This class is Physics with Mr. Manuello. Her
second period class is Spanish with Mrs. Brug and runs from 8:25
a.m. to 9:20 a.m. Second period is five ~inutes longer to allow
for announcements to be broadcast over the Rebel News Network
television system. Stepp did watch the announcements on
April 20, 1999. She did not see the quote of the day which
appears at the end of the announcements. Third period runs from
9:25 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Ouring this period she has Government
Economics with Mr. Tonelli. During fourth period Stepp is a
Student Assistant in the Post-Graduate Center. This period runs
from 10;20 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. The Post-Graduate Center is
located next to the counselor's office. Stepp has what is known
as "A" lunch, which runs from 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
On APril 20, 1999, Stepp went directly from the Post-
Graduate Center to the Publications room to meet Kasey Stoner.
They normally go to lunch together. Stoner is the editor for the
school yearbook and told Stepp that she had work to do. They
decided to go the Commons area and Stoner's car to get some lunch
and bring it back to the Publications room to eat.
They walked down the Math/Science hallway to the stairs
leading down to the Commons area. They went over to the vending
machines located next to the Foreign Language hall. Stepp didn't
see anything in those vending machines she liked, so they went to
look at another set of machines. They went to the vending
~~chines located next to the northwest corner door of the
cafeteria. Stepp got some potato Chips out of the vending
w~chine. They next went out one of the doors on the south side
of the cafeteria. They went to Stoner's car to get her lunch.
Her car was located in the senior lot. Attachment A is a diagram
of the Columbine High School property including the parking lots.

Continuation of FD-302of Emily Stepp 2


Stepp indicated on the diagram the approximate location of
Stoner's car in the Senior Parking Lot.
After retrieving Stoner's lunch they came back into the
cafeteria, again using one of the doors on the south side of the
cafeteria. Stepp remembers saying 'hi' to a couple of friends
seated at a table in the south part of the cafeteria. The
friends were Emily Stuart and Brent Sessions. They then
proceeded to the vending machines located next to the restrooms
to get a pop for Stoner. Stepp remembers prior to leaving the
cafeteria and going back upstairs saying 'hi' to Samantha
Haviland. Haviland waS working at a booth selling "stuff' as a
fundraiser for the golf team. The booth was located next to
Rebel Corner. Stepp did not see anything unusual in the
cafeteria or in the parking lot.
Stepp and Stoner proceeded back up the stairs and down
the Math/Science hallway to the Publications room. The
Publications room is used by the newspaper and yearbook staff.
Including Stepp and Stoner there were a total of seven people in
the Publications room. In the room with them was Angela
Palachek, Jenny Walick, Megan Minger and two other female
students. Stepp and Stoner were sitting on the couch eating
their lunch. At approximately 11,20 to 11,25 a.m. they began
hearing screaming. The screaming sounded like it was coming from
the middle hallway of the school. They saw someone they didn't
know running in a north-to-south direction down the middle
hallway. Stepp then heard what she thought were gunshots or
firecrackers. She heard a very fast burst of approximately seven
or eight gunshots. The sounds were coming from the hallway
between the gymnasium and auditorium or in the front Commons
area. At that point Stepp thought it may have been some type of
a senior prank.
One of the students, possibly Megan Minger, poked her
head out of the door. She turned around and told everybody to
run. Stepp and Stoner went out the back door of the Publications
room to the hallway and ran to the front commons area. As they
reached the front Commons area, they turned right, which would
have led them out the front doors of the school. Stoner was in
front of Stepp and may have been through the first set of glass
doors. Stepp then heard five or six gunshots but doesn't recall
from what direction they appeared to come. She was about to push

JC-001-005539
174A-DN-57419

Emily ,Stepp 3
open the glass door when it shattered. She felt something hot
hit her face at that same moment. She stumbled and caught
herself on the wall next to the doors. The sound of the gunshots
and the glass shattering scared her, and she turned around and
went back to the same middle hallway.
She went down the hallway and headed towards the
English Department office. Inside the office were several
teachers eating their lunch. Stepp yelled at them that there was
somebody shooting in the school. Mr. Webb appeared behind Stepp
grabbing her shoulder. He told everyone there was shooting in
the front Commons area. Webb and Mr. Friesen went to the front
Commons area to see what was "going on'. Mr. Friesen came back
and told them that he saw shattered glass and Mr. Collins, a
Guidance Counselor, in the front Commons area.
Mr. Friesen closed and locked the doer. They then put
two file cabinets and a table in front of the door. They also
covered the glass on the door with a poster board. In the room
with Stepp were Miss Abbott, Mr. Friesen, Miss Nyknen, Miss
Bohack, Mrs. Mulholland, Mr. Meyers, Mrs. Reardon and a junior
student named Adrienne Barcelona. Stepp believes Mr. Webb phoned
the English office from a telephone in Clement Park. Stepp was
able to call her mom from the room. One of the teachers was on
the phone for a long periOd of time with a police officer. They
waited in the English Department office until they were removed
by the SWAT team at approximately 4:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Stepp did remember hearing a loud bomb explode just
before she got into the room and Mr. Webb starting to run out of
the office. She later learned after talking to Stoner that
Stoner had exited out the east doors of the Social Studies area.
Stepp did not see any gunmen and only heard gunshots
and explosions. She was unable to put specific times to any
specific events.
Stepp's backpack is a navy blue Jansport and should be
in the Publications room. In her backpack are car keys, a TI-83
calculator, a Spanish book, school notebooks, her school
identification and her wallet-sized senior pictures. She
believes her locker number is 232, located in the Math hall. She
did not use the locker and believes it to be empty.

Stepp talked to one student, Mandy Nichols, who was


hiding in a Science room that connects to the Tech Lab. Nichols
claimed that they saw Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold watching
television in the Tech Lab at some point during the incident.
Attachment B is a diagram of Columbine High School.
Stepp indicated on the diagram the location of the Publications

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

6/8/99
Janet Etchart, date of birth November 22, 1951, 9565
West Wesley Avenue, Lakewood, Colorado, telephone number (303)
988-5746, was telephonically interviewed. After being advised of
the identity of the interviewing Agent and the nature of the
interview, Etchart furnished the following information:
Etchart is a permanent substitute teacher with
Columbine High School. On April 20, 1999, she was a SUbstitute
teacher for Joe Saviano's freshman and sophomore social studies
classes. Saviano was out of the building and Etchart did not
know his whereabouts. Etchart taught classes during first, third
and fourth period. During second period, she was on hall duty in
front of the library. This was approximately 8:00 a.m. to 9;00
a.m. The hallway was very quiet and she saw only a handful of
kids during her hall duty. Nothing unusual occurred during that
time. Stohart has "A" lunch which begins at 11:15 a.m. She had
a fifth period Sophomore Social Studies class scheduled.
At approximately 11:15 a.m. Etchart went into Kathy
Heron's class, set down some things on a table and walked into
the teacher's workroom. She went into the workroom to work on a
lesson plan for her next class. She sat down at Saviano's desk.
She set her purse, thermos, DayTimer, and book bag on Saviano's
desk. Her purse contained her credit cards, driver's license, a
checkbook, a calculator and a gift certificate. Right after she
sat down at Saviano's desk, she heard several gunshots.
After hearing the gunshots from what she thought was a
semi automatic weapon, a male social studies teacher came into
the workroom. He told them that there was "a shooter" in the
building and they should leave. In the workroom were Gordon
Hayes, his wife Ellen Hayes, a female teacher, another female
teacher with blonde hair, and Etchart. They all exited the
teacher's workroom with Hayes locking the door behind them. They
ran out into the main hallway by the Math and Science areas.
They exited the school through the doors on the east end of the
Math/Science hallway. They then ran across Pierce Street toward
Leawood Park. At that point, Etchart heard an explosion.
Etchart began stopping traffic on Pierce because
stUdents had gone into the parking lots and were trying to leave

in their vehicles. 'Mobs of students' were now exiting the


school out the east door of the Math/Science hallway. Etchart
believed a lot of these students were from the cafeteria. The
kids were panicking. She then heard more explosions and the
teachers began having the students jump the picket fence into
Leawood Park. A few minutes after getting into Leawood Park a
rumor spread that there was a gunman outside of the school
building. The teachers started to get the students in houses
located around the park,
Etchart ended up in a home with several students
including three African American female students. In the house
the students were allowed to call their parents. They were in
the house until approximately 4:30 p.m. and then were told it was
safe to leave. The three African American students seemed very
upset and told Etchart they had gone to one of the female vice
principals concerning how they were treated by individuals in the
Trenchcoat Mafia. Those people had been calling them 'nigger"
and grOWling at them when they passed them in the hallways. The
students said the Vice Principal basically told them to turn the
other cheek. One of the girls was the sister of Isaiah Shoels.
When the students and teachers were in Leawood Park,
Etchart was talking in a circle with a group of teachers. A
student walked up to them and said, "I think I know who did it."
The student wanted to go into the school building. The teachers
told him no and he left the area and they didn't see him again.
Etchart didn't personally talk with the student but he talked
with the other teachers standing in the group. Several days
later Etchart was watching television and saw the same student on
TV. She identified this student as Brooks Brown, Another
student also approached the group of teachers. This student was
described as a white male with long blonde hair. This student
also wanted to get back into the school and get whoever was
shooting stating, "I'll get him." Etchart considered the student
just to be obnoxious as he also kept asking for cigarettes.
Etchart said on April 20, 1999, there were
approximately 12 substitute teachers in the building, Including
Etchart there were two permanent SUbstitute teachers and ten
substitute teachers for that day.

interviewinq Agent, and the nature and purpose of the interview.
He was interviewed in the presence of his Mother, Marvena
Shriver, DCB 11/25/57. He provided the following information.
On 4/20/99, Joshua arrived at school at approximately
7:30 a.m. He went to his normal classes, and had fourth period
as a free period. He went to the commons/cafeteria area, and did
SOllie studying. There were approximately 60 other students in the
area at that time. He didn't notice any duffel bags or large
packages that looked out of the ordinary to him. He sat at
either table Z,P, or O. He sat with the following individuals.
1. Malia Hall
2. Matt LNU
3. Suzanne Meyers
4. Aaron LNU
When fourth period was over, although he normally has lunch
during first or 'A' lunch. he decided to do some homework in the
English classroom/computer lab area. At approximately 11:20 a.m
he was sitting in hallway doinq some homework near the computer
lab. He SUddenly heard some poppin'll sounds, followed by an
eXplosion from the other side of the school. He initially
thouqht that this may have been a bookshelf crashinq down. Next
he heard two qirls scream near the hallway towards the
auditorium. A teacher he identified as Mr. Leyba ran by him,
looked into the teachers office, and then told Josh that there
was a quy with a qun in the school, and to qet out. He exited

to Clement Park.
Prior to 4/20/99, Josh didrrt know who Harris or
Klebold were, nor did he know any of the other Trench Coat Mafia

the hallways or classrooms with TCM types, but that was the
extent of it. He did know of the TCM. but didn't think that they
were a violent group. Since he has returned to school. he has
heard rumors that Klebold and Harris had more or less broken away
from the TCM. He also knew that the TCM didrrt like the jocks at
