DENVER (AP) — The Latest on the Colorado school shooting (all times local):

9:55 a.m.

Colorado prosecutors have charged the students suspected of opening fire at their school with over a dozen counts of murder and attempted murder as well as theft and arson.

The shootings at the STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7 killed 1 student and injured 8 others.

The accused gunmen, 18-year-old Devon Erickson and 16-year-old Alec McKinney, were arrested at the school and investigators say they opened fire inside using handguns.

The charges were listed in electronic court records. It wasn't clear if McKinney was being charged as an adult.

A memorial service for the student killed is also scheduled for Wednesday.

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.

The celebration of 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo's life will be held at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch. The service is planned to begin just a few hours after the two suspects are due in court.

Prosecutors are expected to file charges Wednesday morning against the students accused of the attack at the STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7 that killed Castillo and wounded eight other classmates. The hearings were planned for Friday but a judge decided to delay.

Prosecutors have said they will decide whether to charge 16-year-old Alec McKinney as an adult alongside 18-year-old Devon Erickson.
