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 Christesen 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. Deputies with the sheriff's office and surrounding police departments responded to the school after reports of a shooting.

Keep in mind that there are over 10,000 public schools in the US and, even where one of these shootings takes place, only a tiny fraction of the student body and staff are physically injured or killed.

But yeah, Nowhere is “safe”. We live in a lost and fallen world that is, quite literally, Satan’s domain.

Can’t be true. Schools are gun free zones.

Some may find this interesting:

Statistically, if only three are killed, it is not considered a “mass shooting”.

I also wonder if this is gang related.

Aztec does have that element; but as a high school, it is fairly middle-America, with farming, ranching and power plant hands all around.

“Statistically, if only three are killed, it is not considered a “mass shooting”.”

And that’s why we know blacks commit far more mass shootings than whites.

As Aztec is a rural town of about 6,000, mostly ranch/farm kids about 25 miles from the NM/CO border. There is always a chance of gang or gangster wannabes, but it can be doubtful. Will have to wait to get the truth after the investigation of the who/why.

It’s amazing how much damage you can do when there is no one who can stop you.

Shootings like this are almost always when someone felt disrespected, belittled, jilted, etc, and they were too mentally frail to handle it in a less terminal way.

Another high profile shooting just as it is announced that franken will resign. These occurrences are getting to be a challenge to write off as coincidence.

I am sensing it was probably the result of a very nasty break up.

There’s areas around Tampa, and I’m sure this is a big problem elsewhere where kids are a thousands of times more likely to get run over getting to and from the bus stops, than being victims of “gun violence” in our schools.

“Aztec is in the middle of Indian country, there are a lot of gang problems on the Rez nowadays”

.... I’m not sure if that’s accurate.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec,_New_Mexico

“The racial makeup of the city is 79.23% White, 0.38% African American, 9.31% Native American, 0.14% Asian, 0.13% Pacific Islander, 7.53% from other races, and 3.29% from two or more races. 19.22% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race.”

I think I installed a surveillance camera in the library at that school about 12 years ago.
