AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — The latest on a shooting at a New Mexico high school (all times local): 10:25 a.m. Authorities say three people are dead following a shooting at a New Mexico high school.

San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christensen told reporters that three people believed to be students died Thursday at Aztec High School.

He says the shooter also was dead but didn’t say if the suspect was among the three. 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.
