ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Seniors at a Colorado high school where a student was killed in a shooting two weeks ago are graduating.

The Denver Broncos will host commencement ceremonies for STEM School Highlands Ranch Monday evening at their training facility in suburban Denver.

Eighteen-year-old Kendrick Castillo was fatally shot as he and two other classmates tried to stop one of the two gunmen who attacked the school on May 7. The shooting came during the last week of classes for Castillo and his fellow seniors.

The ceremony won't be open to the media because organizers want it to be as close to normal as possible. However, school spokesman Chris Arnold says it will include a tribute to Castillo, who was remembered for his selflessness during a memorial service last week.
