Dead, Including Students, in New Mexico School Shooting

Three people are dead and more than a dozen others are injured after a gunman opened fire at New Mexico's Aztec High School Thursday morning.

As the noise got louder and closer, school officials issued a warning over the loud speaker.

Though the shooting at Aztec High School was confirmed by the San Juan County Sheriff's Office, there are still conflicting number of casualties. Mike Heal, the chief of the Aztec Police Department, did not indicate whether two of the dead were students or adults. Authorities say it could be a few hours before the lockdowns are lifted.

State and federal authorities are investigating what led to the shooting.

Aztec High School is in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation, an expansive native American territory. Aztec is located in northwest New Mexico.

"We all know each other in San Juan County", she added. Authorities said the school building was evacuated and the students were escorted to a safe location.
