  • 2 Students Killed In Shooting At New Mexico High School

Authorities have identified two students who were killed when a gunman opened fire Thursday at a New Mexico high school.

Kassetas said Francisco Fernandez entered the bathroom where Atchison was gearing up.

Friends were sharing their condolences on Marquez's Facebook page, which displayed photos of the teen in her cheerleading outfit.

Marquez's grandparents spoke to the crowd at Thursday's vigil, and many members of Fernandez's family wore shirts with his picture on it.

"As a family and as a community this shook us to our core but we have to remember that as a community we can heal", Martinez said. They planned another news conference Friday morning.

School roads leading to Aztec High School are blocked off by law enforcement due to a shooting that was reported on the morning of December 7 at Aztec High School in Aztec, N.M.

Other details about the incident, including how, where and when it occurred, were unavailable. He was interrupted by a male student - who he shot and killed. At the time, he reportedly did not own any weapons other than an airsoft pellet gun and said he had no plans for an attack and just liked to troll sites online.

He also acknowledged the staff of the school were "heroes and helped saved lives". Police said the suspect disguised himself as a student and went into the school as buses were letting people in.

The shooter was also killed, says Harcrow, but it was unknown how the shooter died.

"All New Mexicans are with Aztec today", she said.

In a school with about 900 students, two students died.

News 13 spoke to one student who says she listened to the sound of gunshots that got closer and closer to her classroom.

"No Bloomfield students are injured and the lockdowns at Bloomfield Schools are precautionary at this time".

The students all had to hide until they were told by officials to walk out of the room toward the parking lot, he said.

Atchison then walked out to the hallway and encountered Casey Jordan Marquez, and he "immediately shot her dead", Kassetas said. Aztec is a rural community of approximately 6,500 people.

The fatal victims were two students at Aztec High School, San Juan County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Jayme Harcrow tells PEOPLE. Students were taken to another location.

State and federal authorities are investigating what led to the shooting.

According to a KOB4, a local news station, Fernandez was a recent transfer to Aztec High School.

Deputies and Lt. Kyle Lincoln from the San Juan County Sheriff Department then helped clear the building and actively searched the school.
