School. It started originallyas a medical call. and several seconds later, Deputy Neal Gardneradvised the party wasdown due
to gunshotwounds. I responded from the area of West Chatfield andSouth Kipling Street, utilizing my lights andsiren. While
en route, Deputy Gardner advised that he had shots coming from inside the school on the southwest comer. I arrived at
approximately 1129 hours, and responded to the southwest comer of the parkinglot. Deputy Gardner advised he was under
heavy fire fromthe suspects. I drove in the parkinglot and wentto thesecond or thitd row of cars on my right.and parked my
patrolcar, andexitedmy vehiclewith the shotgun. I tooka position ofcovet behind a black Toyotaa-Runner, Frominside the
school I heard approximately 40 to 50 rounds, rifle tire, and small arms tire, there were approximately six to eight smaller
explosions, and two very large explosions, one by the south double door entry which blew out two windows and caused
considerable damage. As I was maintaining a perimeter on the southend, shotswerestill comingfromwithin the cafeteria area.
- everal minutes later. I had six studentsexit the southcafeteria doors, running south towards me. As they exitedthe cafeteria.
when the doorswere open, I observeda largefireball explosion within the confines of the cafeteria. I secured the six students
next to me, ensuringthat they were out of line of fire. Theywere unable to evacuate at that time.

Approximately 45 minutes later, the gunfire and explosions had been continuing sporadically throughout this time. An
ambulance, possibly from WestMetro, drove inll> the southlot. I directed themout of the line of fire to respondover to the far
west comer to help remove wounded children. Another ambulance pulledintothe parking lot,and drove over to assist the first
ambulance. They parked directly in front of the cafeteria by the steps going up to the second story, At this time. the four
paramedics exitedtheirambulances, and immediately thesecond storywindows, from whatwaslater determined 10 be the libnuy,
were shot out from the inside by the suspects firing, I assumed at the paramedics and officers that were downbelow. 1heard
officers thai were on the west side of the building liIcing the library, return fire. I advised dispatch we were taking fire and
returning fire. At that time,I hada clearview of the windows that werebeing 'hot out. I utilized my shotgun, firing tworounds
of slugs lntothe windowdirected at the muzzleflash the! I bad seen from inside. Several moreshots were fired from inside, and
then everythingwas quiet.

Fifteen minUles Or so after exchanging gunfire with the suspects, two Denver PD Officers made their way to the six kids who
were next to me. These kids were safely evacuated by these two officers.

I remainedon my position until about 1530or 1545 hours, at which time Lakewood's SWAT team arrived and gave me relief.
The Lakewood SWAT team and the other SWAT teams, Denver and Jefferson County, Were all inside clearing the building.
After the southwest comer was secured. I evacuated one more elderly woman, apparently a faculty member, from that location
in my patrol car to the command center.

At that point, I was utilized as a bomb tech with the rest of the bomb squad, and we set up on the west side of the building to
begin dealing with the devices that had been left behind. All of the devices that were located Were safely dealt with, 1had no
part in this. ather than assisting the other bomb squads. and getting those items disposed of properly.

biological father at the Super S Hotel. Matthew Dykeman provided copies to


the agents of American On Line documents he had printed off the computer
relating to Eric Ha~ris and Dylan IUebold. These documents were cuzned
over to the li'BI agent. Nathan Dykeman gave the following information to
the agents.
Dykeman has not had American On t.ine (AOt.> for at least. a year. His AOt.
screen name was "IceFuryXw. He used to exchange e-mail with £ric Harris. He
never exchanged e-mail with Dylan IUebold. Harris's E-mail address was
"RebOornine at one time and he also used "RebOoomer". He does not ~~ow what
d

they meant. Harris used the nickname "Reb IUebold used the nickname d

"Vodka" and at one time used the nickname "Voodoom". On the AOt. dccumencs
received from Matthew Dykeman, Harris uses the phrase "Let God Sort It
Out". This is a saying from a video game. Chris Morris's AOL name was
"Grunt" with some numbers also associated with it. Dykeman does not
remember the numbers because it has been a couple of yea.rs since he has
.~~t anything to Morris.

The Columbine High School's prom was Saturday April 17, 1~99. Dykeman went
in a limo with other friends and their dates. The others included
Dykeman's date Christine Epling, Dylan Klebold and his date Robin Anderson,
Jessica Hughes and her date, who Dykeman did not know and does not re~~mber
his name, Kelly Brown and her date, who Dykeman did not know and did not
know his name, Janna (LNU) and her date, who Dykeman did not know and did
not know his name, and Monica (LNU) and her date, who Oykeman did not know
and did net. know his name. Dykeman did know .that Kelly Srown's date was in
his early 20's. Everyone met at Kelly Brown's house except Jessica and her
date and Janna and her date. The limo first went to Kelly's house and then
stopped at Janna's house and Jessica's house. At approximately 7:30 p.m.
to 8:00 p.m., the limo dropped everyone off at Bella's, an Italian
restaurant downtown. During dinner, Klebold wanted to have a smoke, se
Dykeman and IUebold went outside. IUebold seemed. normal to Dykeman and
talked about his trip to Arizona he had just got back from. Klebold had
been accepted to a school in Arizona. ·Dinner lasted until 9:30 p.m. or
10:00 p.m.

Eric Harris had tried to get a date, but was unable. He had asked a bunch
of girls out but they t=ed him down. Dykeman had heard that he a.sked a
Brandy (LNU) who was in Harris's and his video class, a Sabrina Cooley, and
:<atie (LNU), who is a. sophomore or Junior. Ha=is' friend Mike Vendaneya.
(He was not sure of spelling) would know more about this. oykeman is not
sure if Ha.=is asked out a Susan ILNU), but he spent the night of prom with

la.st name~

Between 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., the limo dropped Dykeman and the others
in the limo off at the dance, which was at the DenveX' Design C..nter.
Dykeman did not talk to or see Klebold at the dance afteX' they were dropped
off. Dykeman hung around his friend Tim Kastle. The dance was over at
midnight at which time they all returned to the limo. The limo stopped at
Jessica's house and Janna's house then dropped Dykeman and the rest of them
off at Kelly's house. Everyone then changed into jeans and took thai:\::' own
cars to the AfteX' PX'om Party at Columbine High School. The After Prom
Party is like a carnival that the parents put on for the students to keep
them off the road on prom night. The After prom paX'ty lasted from midnight
to 5:00 a.m. Klebold and his date Robin Anderson took her car to the
party. HeX' car is a 2 door lighe blue Honda.. Dykeman believes that the
ca~ is a late 80'S o~ ea~ly SO's CRX. Dykeman and Christine were ae the
p-~y for app~oximately 45 minutes before they saw Klebold and Robin at the
• .e black jack tables that wel;e !ilet up. Dykeman socialized some with
Chris Morris and his date Nicole (L.VU). Dykeman saw Eric Harris about
12:30 p.m. at the party. Dykeman did noe see Harl;is or Klebold leave and
did not !ilee them after about 2:00 a.m., which is a rough guess by Dykeman.
Dykeman hung around Tim Kasele and Christine most of the night. Dykeman and
Chriseine were some of the last people to leave. Oykeman and Christine went
to Denny's restaurant with an Alisa Se~~er and a De~ek (LNU) afeer the
party. After b~eakfast Christine and Dykeman went up to the mountain to
watch the sun rise. Cn the way to ehe mauneains they wene by Klebold's

On Monday April lSi, 19S1S1, at approximately 6,15 a.m., Oykeman arrived at


his bowling class at the Bellview Bowling Alley. The class starts at 6:30
a.m. Chris Morris, Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, and Dustin Gordin are in the
class with Dykeman. Gordin is a friend of Dykeman and an associate of
Harris and Klebold. Morris, Harris, and Klebold were all in bowling class
that morning. They did not talk much about the prom. At approximately 7;15
a.m., Klabold, Harris, Morris, Gordin and Dykeman went to the King Soopers
near Pierce and Coal Mine. Morris drove separate, Klebold. and Harris drove
together, Gordin drove separate, and Dykeman drove separate to King
Soopers. Gordin drives a Green and primer 1974 Chevrolet Chevelle.
Klebold'5 car is an early ao's black BMW. Harris' car is a gray 1989 Henea
Prelude. Dykeman is not sure what car Harris and Klebold Were in that day.
At apprOXimately 8:00 a.m., Oykeman headed to school. Harris had. video
class with Dykeman at Columbine High School. This was Dykeman'S second
class after bowling.
v~rris kept falling asleep in video class and the teacher told him to go to
~ nurse's office to sleep. Dykeman's third class was gym and Harris'
third class was philosophy. Dykeman'S 4~ class was creative writing.
Harris and Klebold have thiS class with him. The teacher did not arrive on
time to open up the class, so Rarris and Klebold skipped class. After his
creative writing class, Oykeman went home for lunch. Harris and Klebold
usually leave during lunch time. He thinks they might go to Black Jack's
Pizza for lunch. BOth his stepfather and mother were home when he got
there. Oykeman got back to school around 11:50 a.m. He saw Christine and
walked t$ psychology class with her. Both Harris's and Klebold's cars were
in the parking lot in their assigned spots. Dykeman also saw the cars in
the parking lot before lunch. Harris, Klebold, Kastle, Nick Foss, Oykeman,
Christine, and Sabrina (LNO) were in this class. This is the same Sabrina
which Harris had asked out to prom. According to Dykeman, Kastle is one
the students that was held at gun point during the incident. After this
class, which ends at 12,40 p.m., Oykeman is finished with school for the
day. He works at the Firestone at Pierce and canyon, and had to be there to
clock in by 1;00 p.m. He finished work between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Dykeman thinks he went home and showered before going over to Christine'S
house. He got to Christine'S at approximately 7,00 p.m. He left
Christine's house between 10:00 p.m. ~nd 10;30 p.m. He went home and said
good night to his mother and stepfather and went to bed .
. Tuesday April 20, 1SI9Sl, Dykeman and Morris got to bowling claslS at
approximately 6:00 a.m. Harris and Klebold never showed up. After class

King Soopers with him for breakfast. No one was in the video room, so he
went eo King soopers by himself. He sat in the parking lot at King soopers
eating and listening to his car stereo. He got to school at approximately
8,00 a.m. and talked to the video eeacher for awhile. Harris and Klebold
never showed up for class. Kastle was in class. Harris and Klebold did not
show up for creative writing claSS either. At lunch time Oykeman walked to
the parking loe where he $aw Christine. Christine drove off in her car. As
Dykeman drove out of the senior parking lot, he saw Harris walking towards
the double doors leading inco the cafeteria. By the direction Harris was
going, it appeued eo Dykeman thae Huri$ might have come from the junior
parking lot. Dykeman did not see or look for Harris's car in the parking
lot. Harris had on a black trench coat, dark sunglasses, and was carrying
something in his left hand, possibly his black oomputer bag. Robin Anderson
parks her car in ehs senior parking lot, but in the corner next to the
junior lot. Dykeman does noe remember seeing a back pack or anything else
r-ing carried on Harris' back. Dykeman said he was not positive it was
.ris, but was pretty sure. Dykeman went to lunch ae his house. His mother
and stepfather were there. He headed back to the school at apprOXimately
11:40 a.m. He has to be in class at 11:50 a.m. When Dykeman got ec Pierce
and Coal Mine, he noticed fire tr~cks and thought there was an accident.
Oykeman eried to go around another way to get to the schcol, but there were
more police and could not get through. He flashed his lights and got this
girl he knows who was driving in front of him to stop. She told him that
two men with trench coats wene ineo the school shooting. Dykema.~ said he
got a feeling that it could be Harris and Kleoold. Dykeman turned his car
around and headed towards home. He saw Christine driving and waved to he t:
to follow. They drove to his house. Dykeman told his parents it could be
Harris and Klebold that were the gun men. Oykeman, his mother, his
stepfather and Christine watched the television and the school from the
second floor deck. Dykeman called Klebold's dad at home. Klebold's dad is a
geologist and works out of his home. Dykeman asked Klebold' s dad i f he had.
seen Dylan. Klebold' s father said that Dylan was at school. Dykeman
informed Klebold's dad that Dylan had not been at schcof, all day and whae
he had heard about the shooting.
Klebold is involved in a Fantasy Baseball game with Andrew aea~d; Adam
Sands, Cliff Andrus, Chad Laughlin, and Tim Kalllele. Dykeman was involved
last year and won the money pool. Fantasy Baseball is all done on papa..
d involves drafting players and keeping score by how well the real
players do thae season. Chad Laughlin runs the gallle and his telephone

About two weeks prior to the shooting, Dykeman saw Harris with a video in
their video claSS. The video was of Harris, Klebold, Phil Duran, Duran's
best friend Mark (LNU), and Mark (LNU) gidfr:i.end, who Dykeman does not
know and doeS not know her name. Duran, Mark, and the girlfr:i.end are all
in their twenties. Dykeman knows Duran because he used to deliver to the
Black. Jack when Dyk.eman worked there. Harris was edi ting che tape, when
Dykeman heard sun fire. Oykeman walked over to Harris and inqul.red about
the video. Harris told him that he and the people in the video wene up
shooting in Rampart, which is somewhere up North. Harris and Klebold were
shooting a double barrel sawed off shotgun, a pump acc i.cn shoegun, and a
semi automatic pistol similar to an UZI. Phil and Mark were shooting a
semi automatic assault type rifle whi~~ was all black. Dykeman already knew
that the UZI type pistol and the double barrel shotgun belonged eo Klebold
from earlier conversation they had. Harris told him the pump action shotgun
~. ~ his. Mark and the girlfriend were also shooting a large semi-automatic
~ ~tol. Dykeman watched the video for about S minutes. Dykeman believes

Klebeld cold Oykeman that he was the only person he had told ocher than
~. 1!arris. He had nee even told b.is hesc friend Zach Heckler. Klebold and
Heckler were net as close at this time because Heckler had a girlfriend and
went his separate ways. Klebold told Dykeman noe to cell anyone. iUebold
told him it was his second payment and he had paid the bulk of the money
already, which was a couple hundred dollars. Klebold told Dykeman that
Harris was w1th him when he got the guns. KIebold told Dykeman that he had
r->; purchased any other guns. Harris had told Klebold that he could get
'- ,1S from Duran and his friend Mark (L..'I1J'). Dykeman believes it was on a
weekend before a gun show in December 1998, that Harris ment10ned that he
and Klebold were going to a gun show with Duran. It was a local gun show.

firearms. He never heard any talk of purchasing ammunition either.
In the beginning of the Summer of 1997, Dykeman went with Harris and
Klabold to a culvert that ran under Wadsworth between Ken Caryl and
Chatfield Reservoir. They lic off a C02 device that Harris had made out of
a C02 cartridge he filled with black powder and stuck a fireworks fuse in.
The device also had gray duct tape on it. A few days after this Dykeman
was with Klebeld when he drilled out some C02 cartridges to make them
easier to fill with powder. Klebold did this because Harris had told him
it was hard to fill t:hem with powder having the smaller hole. Oykeman
