A shooting at a New Mexico high school Thursday morning has left three people dead, and over a dozen wounded, law enforcement officials have reported.
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office posted a notice on its Facebook page, stating, “Aztec High School is locked down and being evacuated. Please avoid the area. Parents can stage at 516 and Mesa Verde near the church to pick up their kids. We will update this as we learn more.”
It has been reported that the gunman is one of the three dead, but it is unclear as to whether the gunman was a student.
KOB News reported that two students are dead, along with the gunman, and that 15 were wounded in the shooting.
Other schools in the area were put on lockdown as a precaution, but no incidents were reported at any other locations.
This is a developing story.
