Erickson is facing the same charges but has pleaded not guilty.

Court documents say that the two students were high on cocaine when they walked into the school, located about 13 miles south of Denver, with a guitar case full of guns.

Investigators say Erickson and McKinney used cocaine at Erickson’s house before hacking into his parents’ gun safe with an ax and crowbar.

McKinney was the mastermind behind the shooting, according to police. The teen, who identifies as male, wanted revenge on classmates who mocked him for his gender identity.

McKinney reportedly told police that he "wanted everyone in that school to suffer and realize that the world is a bad place.”

Erickson told investigators he was afraid of McKinney and made several efforts to stop the attack or limit the carnage, according to court documents released in Douglas County, Colorado.
