Prosecutor asks for coroner's inquest into Columbine shooting death

The Jefferson County, Colo., district attorney has taken the unusual step of asking the county coroner to hold an inquest into the death of Columbine High School student Daniel Rohrbough. Coroner Carl Blesch said in a statement that he's taking the request under advisement and will announce a decision Thursday.

ALSO: Denver Police Sgt. Dan O'Shea did not shoot anyone at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, his attorney says. The parents of Daniel Rohrbough, one of the 13 Columbine victims, have alleged that the sergeant shot their son.
