The father of the Colorado school shooting suspect is not only a serial felon but also an illegal immigrant, according to reports.

Suspect Maya “Alec” McKinney was identified as one of two suspects in the STEM Highlands Ranch shooting last week, which left eight injured and one dead.

Records obtained by the Daily Mail revealed McKinney’s father Jose Evis Quintana is a Mexican illegal immigrant that has already been deported twice.

Quintana was sent to prison after being charged with domestic violence against McKinney’s mother.

He was also arrested on multiple occasions between 2008 and 2017 in Colorado.

But despite the violence committed on McKinney’s mother, Quintana married her in 2009.

He was later deported the following year.

The couple had three children together including Maya McKinney, who was born in 2003.

Morgan McKinney and Quintana were married in 2009, but she later filed for divorce in 2014.

The divorce court papers describe how Quintana “has been traveling illegally between Colorado and Mexico.”

According to The Epoch Times: In 2016, an arrest warrant was issued for Quintana for domestic violence. He was located in Colorado, arrested for being a fugitive, and jailed pending extradition to New Mexico.

He was soon deported.

During Maya McKinney’s first court appearance after the May 7 shooting in Highlands Ranch, her attorneys said that she was born as Maya McKinney but preferred to be addressed as “Alec” and identifies as a male, a condition known as transgenderism.

The World Health Organization classified a person declaring to be a gender different from the one they were born as a mental illness until June 2018.

Meanwhile, all but one of those injured in the shooting have been released from hospitals, officials said.

Prosecutors investigating the case against two students suspected of shooting nine classmates, one fatally, in a suburban Denver charter school have until next week to decide what charges to pursue, a judge ruled Friday.

Meanwhile, all but one of those injured in the shooting have been released from hospitals, officials said.

District Judge Theresa Slade delayed hearings that had been scheduled for Friday for Devon Erickson, 18, and 16-year-old Alec McKinney, who is listed in court documents as Maya. They are suspects in the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday.

Court spokesman Rob McCallum said that both the prosecutors and defense agreed to a postponement until Wednesday.

Vikki Migoya, a spokeswoman for District Attorney George Brauchler, did not explain the reason for the delay.

The entire court file in the case is under seal. In an initial court appearance on Wednesday, Brauchler asked for a delay until Monday to file charges so that authorities would have the weekend to pursue their investigation.

The latest delay until Wednesday gives prosecutors more time to decide whether to charge McKinney as an adult. Colorado law permits prosecutors to file adult charges of serious felonies against 16- and 17-year-olds without prior approval from a judge.

Kendrick Castillo, the 18-year-old senior, killed during the shooting, and two classmates at the school have been credited with helping thwart the attack by charging at one of the shooters when he entered a classroom.

Authorities have said an armed private security guard restrained the second shooter.

Erickson and McKinney have been in jail since Tuesday on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

The two students walked into their school with handguns and opened fire in two classrooms, authorities said. Investigators have offered no motive and refused to discuss how the students obtained the weapons.
