Investigators believe a gunman who opened fire at Colorado's Arapahoe High School had selected at least five spots he wanted to target on his rampage.
 
The Arapahoe County sheriff said Tuesday that letters and numbers corresponding to the labels of the school library and four adjacent classrooms were written in marker on Karl Pierson's arm. Investigators are looking into who was in the rooms to see if those people were deliberate targets of the gunman.
 
Authorities have previously said they believed a librarian who headed the speech and debate team was Pierson's intended target. The librarian escaped but Pierson critically wounded a 17-year-old girl. Authorities say he fatally shot himself as a resource officer closed in.
 
Also found written on Pierson's arm was a Latin phrase that translates to "The die has been cast." (AP)
