Governor says teacher ended New Mexico school shooting

ROSWELL, N.M. — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez say a 12-year-old who shot two classmates in a Roswell middle school was stopped by a teacher who walked up to him and asked him to put down his shotgun.

Martinez says one student was critically injured and another is in serious condition following Tuesday morning’s shooting at Berrendo Middle School.

State police say the shooter was a seventh grader.

Martinez says the student walked into the gym where students were gathered for class and shot a boy and a girl.

She says a teacher “quickly stopped” the suspect by walking up to him and asking him to put down the firearm, which he did.

The governor says a staff member received very minor injuries but declined medical care because he wanted to stay and help.

Hospital officials say the boy who was shot is 11 and the girl is 13.
