Police responding to shooting at New Mexico high school

Students hid in their classrooms, some behind locked doors, as a suspect opened fire Thursday inside a New Mexico high school, killing two classmates before ending up dead. Two students were wounded in a shooting at a Roswell middle school in 2014.

According to the Farmington Daily Times, neither the victims nor the shooter have been identified.

Though the shooting at Aztec High School was confirmed by the San Juan County Sheriff's Office, there are still conflicting number of casualties. Aztec is located in northwest New Mexico. Thursday's shooting appears to be the most serious in a New Mexico school in years.
