COLORADO– A student at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado wrote a message on his hand during Friday’s school shooting.

KDVR reports that Matt Bowers scribbled the note to his parents because he feared his body would be found by police after the shooting.

He wrote, “I love you all so much. I’m up here now.”

Investigators say the shooter, Karl Pierson, 18, shot at a faculty member and then shot and wounded a student before taking his own life.

On Tuesday, KDVR reported that the Arapahoe County sheriff said Pierson planned to attack at least five different areas of the school.
