case from the main office. As they got next to the hanging
trophy case, Leyba looked down the hallway and saw a silhouette
of a person against the backlighting of the west entrance doors.
The distance to the west entrance doors from Leyba's position by
the hanging trophy case was approximately one hundred yards. The
silhouette was holding a gun, pointing it down the hallway toward
the Library. The gun was longer than a pistol and had a barrel
that extended beyond the gunman's hand. Leyba thought the gun
was a semiautomatic and may have been a rifle. Because of the
distance the gunman was from Leyba and the backlighting, Leyba
could give no distinguishing features or a height for the gunman.
The gunman than fired seven gunshots down that hallway. The
gunshots were in a continuous pattern and there was no pause in
between the gunshots.
Leyba ran to the English Hallway. He heard several
more gunshots behind him as he was heading south in the English
Hallway. The gunshots were louder and seemed closer. The
gunshots were still coming from the area of the Main Hallway.
Leyba turned east running down the hallway by the Social Studies
classrooms. He ushered out the exit at the end of the hallway,
some students that had been sitting on the floor studying. He
also yelled into the Social Studies Office "shots fired in the
building get out now". He remembers Chuck Herron, Gordon Hayes,
Ellen Hayes and a substitute teacher being in the office.
Levba than ran out that east exit and ran to his car
parked in the Teacher's Lot. He drove out of the parking lot
onto pierce Street heading north. He turned into Clement Park
and parked his car by the shelter. He tried to call 911 on his
cellular telephone but got a busy signal. He could see students
running out of the school and yelled for them to come to the
shelter. He than heard a couple of more gunshots and started
pushing the students further into Clement Park. During this time
he seeing police units arriving at the school. Using his
cellular telephone he than paged his friend Kallie Brown, a
teacher at another Jefferson County School. The time that the
page appeared on Brown's pager was 11:37 a.m.. Leyba than
telephoned the English Department Office and talked with Eric
Friesen. They talked for about one minuce and Leyba gave Friesen
his cellular telephone number. Friesen and several other
teachers and students had barricaded themselves in the office.
Friesen called Leyba back a short time later. By that time the

police were on scene and were in the park. Leyba gave the
cellular telephone to a police officer to assist tre police in
locating the English office in the school. The police used the
telephone to maintain contact with Friesen until th~y were
rescued by a SWAT team.
Attachment A is a diagram of CHS. Leyba indicated on
the diagram the location of Studenka's office, DeAngelis' office
and his movements to exit the school.
Leyba had seen Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris around the
CHS. Leyba did not know Klebold or Harris as neither wers in any
of his classes during the 1998/99 school year nor during the time

Member of the Atlantic Anarchist Circle
and the Confederation of Anarchist Youth
ATTENTiON: RAY is no longer an active organization. This page is online lor historic purposes only. CAYis
'also' no longer active.

We are a part Of the Confederallon of Anarchlsl Youlh. Tr.e confederation started out as a group of 40
YQUng activists in Northampton, MA, but our numbers are increasing every day. If you want to lind Out
how tc get involved, click here.

As we slate in our manifesto, we are committed to making a genuine change in our society. Just
because we are born into an oppressive worlddoesn't mean It has to stay mat way. Only by locking
arms and presenting a real challenge to the status quo wlii we ever see an egalnarian society.

We leel that il is important lor activIstgroups to be empowerirlg and educating to their members. For
thet reason, our group mskes decisions by consensus. We have weekly discussion and reading
groups (oheck out our bibliography), as well as occasional film vlewings and discussions.

We believe that it Is critical for anarchists to be Out in melr communities, talking to peopleand building
connections. For that reason, we have information tablesat local shows where we talk about youth
issues from an anarchistpoinl of view, We are alsoinrtlating a Books 10 Prisoners program in our
area to supply radicallileralure to the prison community, This program Is connected with the Radical
Lending Library that we are Irylng 10 start in Amherst.

Finally, Ihe Pioneer Valleyhas numerous businesses and hangouts that either directly or indirectly
support us, Click here to see a list.

Manifesto

Because we were brought into a society based on competition, greed, and


exploitation, we have a responsibility to unite to destroy the existing systems
of hierarchy, both intemal and external, that stifle our creativity, freedom and
potentiality. In opposition to this oppressive system, we, as socially aware
youth, have collectively gathered and developed tactics for creating a new
world.
Revolutionary Anarchist Youth (RAY) is a group of radical anti-authoritarian
activists fighting for a society where everyone has basic political, economic
and human rights.
By dismantling capitalism, a classist system based on the exploitation of
human labor as product, and the state, including all govemment bo dies, RAY
envisions the construction of a society based on egalitarian self-governing
communities, confederated together for the benefit of all.
RAY seeks a permanent total transformation regarding politics, culture and
economics. RAY explicitly welcomes diversity of it members and supporters
as it works for the liberation of desire through social responsibility, We are
committed to and rooted in the diverse ethnic and social communities in which
we work.

The Dominicn at the Oark Sinner

If Is said that in a lifetime man crestes


a series or grievous sins. Yat only once will
he commit tfla unto,givab/e sin, the dark sin.
You have entered upon the Dominion, may God
hava mercy on your soul.

The Dominion has been createdIn deflance of those who seektc inhibitthe free thinking and free will of
others. This page is not intended to be used as a guide to highersplrtual/morat stMding, but rather lust an
uncensored informational and expansion page. l do not take responsibBity for actions that you take of your
own free will that may haw originated wirnin lhe contents of my page. I sineereiy hopethat if you cemeaway
wi!l1 anything, whether from pictures, links,or file information, you come awaywith the uMarsta"ding that as
an Individual tt is peninentthat you tree yourself from the controlling chains cf government, society, and
organized religion,

The Dominion of the Dark Sinnerhasn't always gone by this name. It has severaldifferentnames to different
people. For myseif tt startsd lcnq ago. I would write stories and poelly about the dark lonliness within myself.
those darK thoughts that only come to an individual late at night. Thosethoughts, stories, and poems slowly
evolved helping to create who I am, and the way I lookout upon life. So you might say, The Dominion ot the
Dark Sinner, is the place where eachone of us goeswhen were feeling lonely, depressed, sulcldal....because
we are told that such thoughts as those are true sinsand thatwe should nsver allow ourselves to sink so low.

Well welcome to my humble domain child of darknesll. Where shall I begin•." was born In sin
and thus I shall die in pIllrpetual sin? No, no that is not suitable, pIllrhaps I shalllnvita you to See inlo
the darkness of my soul, and all of lhe inunity lhlll exists within my mind. That would be too simple,
my 1I1e should only be open to those Who Iruly understand what the darkness Is about..,

Sitting In darkness, with my lone candle burning low to the Wick, I pender the dark questiens
that oltan plague uS of the darkness...death, suicide. the sweet alluring smell ef 1ear•.,dark
romanticism. What is it about the death that Is so fascinellng? Is it the seductive beauty ot the
unknewn, the complete peaee!!\aIls achieved, or being veld of all the pain that is experienced
everyday?

The deadly dance of suicide, hew far te push lhat intlmala thrill of walldng the fine line. Have
yeu never experienced thls...walklnglhe fine line between death and 111emplck up the razor, go ahead,
feel the coolness 01 the steel, the Intense rush 01anxiety...

"There is nothlngalss left out Ihere for you. EverythIng m"anll nOlhing now. There isn't
anything worth holding on to. You are alen,,; emply; eeld. It feels like someone is surgically removing
an antlra portion of your body Without anesthetic. No one knows the pain you are going through -
sure you may be able to talk to people who sympathlta with similar life experiences, but it Is not the
exact peln you are goiflg Ihrough. You cannot even bare to be by yoursslf, with yourself - you hale
You."

Oh, the pain the pain, my heatt sunsrs pain.


A flower. the sun and a love all In vain.
I need the strength. the scent and certain love
I give mysell. my heart to thy. my cressec dove.

Away. away to fertile pastures did thee lly.


And in sorrowfully emotions did I cry,
With that flight my fruiness life's end has past
I end it now, with love 01 my dove until the last.

Jason Ford- September' 995

LONEl.Y
So vou danced with death ehh? I hope you are beginning to understand fully what the
"darkness" Is all about. There is more though.,the "darkness" is also e lonely secluded private place.
Within the loneliness you discover Who and what you are, along with the horror that only your mind
can craate. A friend of mine once said, "put down that Steven King novel, the trllll horror Is the one
you create within yourself."

WlJI my fortification for life end?

But now',s the present,

Shethen heard one of themsay,"Come 00. we have to go",and tltioks she heardthemrun down the
corridor. She recalls bearing a lot of noise which sounded like gunshots, bur is nOE certain that is whatit

12. Dr, Reschke saidthatafterthe scooers laft the area, she began to heat phones ringing, including her OWO,
Alonepoint she answered, and thecaller, not idenMed,asked if this wasColumbine High Scbool.

without talking. Thiscontinued fear is what kept her fromattempting to make any callsoutside,

13, After approximately two hours. shehad not heard anyone else in theouter office. but wasstill uncertain
wh81 was happening, or if thegunmen were stillnearby. ShegO! up and looked through herdoorblinds,
which gave a viewdirectly to Pierce St. at the crossing light. and she sawa marked pollee cat, Sbe also
sawa malecrouched outside mewindow. dressed completely in black. Since 'he hadnot seenanyof the
gu=. 'he did notknow if that person wasa gunman or police officer. so sheelected to remain hidden in
heroffice,

14 She also beard two muffled voices nearby, SU)1Dg something like, "I'm not going tolet you go Out there by
yourself" Shebelieves fromlatertalking to her staffthst it could havebeen Mr DeAngelis andJoe
Marshall, a PE teacher. She thought she then heard movement inthe nearby corridor. butdoes notknow
where they went.
