Eyewitness recalls horrifying shooting incident at a United States school

The teacher had locked the door as he normally does and the students hid in a corner of the room.

A student recalled how horrifying it was to witness shooting incident at Aztec High School, New Mexico, US, and said he had never expected such a thing would happen in the state. The Navajo Nation Office of the President and Vice President, which oversees territory not far from the school, had previously released a statement saying 15 people were injured. Then it got louder and closer. The identities of the shooter and those killed were not released. No other injuries were reported.

Hundreds of friends and family members braved frigid temperatures to gather at a park in the community of Aztec to honor the two students.

Police responded to the school less than a minute after getting the initial calls, which came shortly after the start of the first period. She didn't provide more details.

Police officials said that the gunman had been killed Thursday morning after the attack, though it remained unclear how they had been killed.

"Right after we got outside the door, right outside the door, there was someone lying dead".

The San Juan County Sheriff's Office told KRQE-TVdeputies were working to evacuate students to safety and were searching the school buildings.

The 83-year-old seemingly agreed with Kim's remarks and nodded saying, "Definitely you and Kourtney are my two top favourites". Sam took a bit of time to mull the question over: " Taylor Swift - I don't know her too well".

Authorities have released few details of the shooting in the small town of Aztec near the Four Corners region, other than to say the suspect and two victims were students.

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.

"At schools, our primary role and our primary job is to educate students and keep them safe, and when you have something like this, it hits you in the heart", he said.

In the small community of Aztec, anxious parents rushed to city hall to meet their children.

Gov. Susana Martinez called the shooting a heinous and horrific act and told reporters that teachers, school staff and law enforcement jumped in quickly to prevent more deaths.

Federal agents and state police are helping to investigate the matter.

Sophomore Baily Ramirez described the moment a normal Thursday morning at school turned into a nightmare.
