On Tuesday, the first day back at school following the deaths, protesters showed up to speak out against homosexuality, carrying signs and using megaphones. They were recorded shouting "Homosexual relationships are hateful," "We know that these kids hate themselves," and "You're going to be suicidal, you're not going to know God," according to a clip on YouTube. Students at the school shouted back at them and the next day wore rainbow attire to show support for LGBT people.__

Police did release a statement saying the teens had been in a relationship and that one shot the other before turning the gun on herself, The Arizona Republic reports. Several students also told KPHO the girls had been dating for some time and may have been breaking up. Police have not said which one did the shooting, but they found a suicide note at the scene, and their investigation continues.
