At Least 3 Dead In New Mexico High School Shooting

Police are responding to an active shooter at Aztec High School.

There were no other injuries reported, state police said.

ABC affiliate KOAT, citing Aztec police, report that two people were shot - though their conditions were not specified - and that the suspect is dead.

San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen told reporters that three people believed to be students died on Thursday at Aztec High School.

Local and state police are investigating the shooting alongside agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of the most recent incidents took place at Salem High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Bath High School in Lima, Ohio; and Booksin Elementary School in San Jose, California.

KOAT is working on getting more information.

Aztec, in San Juan County, is a small town in northwest New Mexico, about three hours from Albuquerque, and Farmington authorities assisted in the response to the shooting.

Padilla called the scene "chaotic" and said there was a massive law enforcement presence. Ben Ray Lujan said in a tweet.
