DENVER (Reuters) - A shopping mall near Columbine High School was evacuated on Wednesday after authorities discovered two propane tanks and a pipe bomb, authorities said.

Twelve years to the day after two high school students shot dead a teacher, 12 students and themselves on April 20, 1999, the devices were found at Southwest Plaza Mall, about a mile from Columbine.

Among the arsenal school shooters Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris possessed during their assault in 1999 were pipe bombs and propane tanks fashioned into bombs.
