At Least Three Reported Killed In Aztec High Shoot Shooting

BREAKING: Gunman reported at school with 'multiple people shot' – armed police on scene

Authorities respond to shooting at high school 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.

New Mexico State Police say the suspect in a high school shooting is among the three dead.

A police officer who responded to a mass shooting at a Florida nightclub and now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder is losing his job.

Two of the dead are believed to be students and more than a dozen were injured, KOAT-TV reported.

Authorities haven't identified the shooter or the victims. Christesen did not say if the dead included the shooter.

Authorities said they had cleared all the buildings at the school and that students were boarding buses to another location where they could be reunited with their parents.

Aztec High School is about 180 miles northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Residents voiced disbelief on social media, while members of the New Mexico congressional delegation, state Attorney General Hector Balderas and other elected officials offered their condolences and other assistance. That was confirmed shortly after by San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen.

Police asked parents to stay away from the school, which was placed on lockdown.
