A shooting at a high school in New Mexico Thursday morning has left at least three people dead and 15 others injured.
"New Mexico State Police say two students are dead following a shooting Thursday morning at Aztec High School in Aztec, New Mexico," KOB 4 reports.
While officials revealed that the shooter is dead, it remains unclear if the shooter was a student.
San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen told reporters Thursday morning that the three people who died are believed to be students, however Fox News notes that Christesen wouldn't say if the shooter was among the three.
The high school was evacuated after the shooting, while nearby schools went on lockdown. Officials encouraged parents to pick up their children after the threat was believed to be contained.
"The school is located in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation, about 180 miles north of Albuquerque," Fox reports.
"It's tragic when our children are harmed in violent ways especially on school campuses," Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye said in a press release Thursday. "We express our condolences to those families who have been harmed."
