We have searched for the pair production of first generation scalar leptoquarks in the eejj channel using the full data set (123pb−1) collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron during 1992-1996. We observe no candidates with an expected background of approximately 0.4 events. Comparing the experimental 95% confidence level upper limit to theoretical calculations of the cross section with the assumption of a 100% branching fraction of eq, we set a lower limit on the mass of a first generation scalar leptoquark of 225 GeV/c2. The results of this analysis rule out the interpretation of the excess of high Q2 events at DESY HERA as leptoquarks which decay exclusively to eq.
