Authorities said that three people were killed, including the shooter, following a shooting at a New Mexico high school.

KOB-TV reported that the alleged shooter is also dead, but said it was unclear whether the shooter was included in the reported fatalities.

"Right now everybody is on lockdown", a statement from Bloomfield Police Department says.

It wasn't immediately clear if the shooting happened inside the school or who was suspected of firing the shots.

The San Juan County Sheriff's Office said the school has been evacuated and the scene is now under control.


Families and friends of students of Aztec High School are gathered outside city hall.

Deputies are asking everyone to avoid the area as emergency crews work the scene.
