Police Say Suspect & 2 Students Dead After Shooting At New Mexico School

The scene of Thursday's shooting in New Mexico

At least three people were killed and several wounded after a gunman opened fire inside a high school in New Mexico, US on Thursday. Mike Heal, the chief of the Aztec Police Department, did not indicate whether two of the dead were students or adults. New Mexico Police said via Twitter the shooter was among the the deceased.

A crowd of nervous parents initially gathered outside City Hall to wait for more information as officers tried to reassure them about the safety of their children.

Authorities said families of the victims have been notified but few details on the incident or motive were immediately known.

Sheriff's officials say that the shooter is in custody and that there are reported victims wounded, but it wasn't clear how many.

The school of about 900 students was cordoned off as authorities cleared the campus and teens were taken to another location where they could be reunited with their parents. Other schools in the area also were placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure. He did not say whether anyone had been injured or killed.

The school is in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation.
