A memorial service for a student hailed as a hero for tackling one of the armed attackers at his suburban Denver school is set for Wednesday afternoon just a few hours after the two suspects are due in court.

The celebration of 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo's life will be held at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch. The senior was just days from graduating when he was fatally wounded in the May 7 shooting.

A day after the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch in Colorado, local officials urged people not to view such attacks as part of life in Colorado.

"These are aberrant acts," 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler said.

This week's attack happened not long after the 20th anniversary of the school shooting in nearby Columbine. The shooting injured eight people and left one student dead. Police say he has been identified by the Douglas County coroner as Kendrick Ray Castillo, 18.

The Douglas County Sheriff says Kendrick Ray Castillo, the student killed in the shooting at the STEM School Highlands Ranch yesterday, was a senior who would have finished school on Friday.

Sheriff Tony Spurlock says they don't have information about a possible motive for the shooting at this time.

"We are still actively working the crime scene with our partners from the FBI. We anticipate that's probably going to take at least two more days for us to manage that," he said.
