Aztec – Authorities say the 21-year-old gunman who killed two students at a New Mexico high school disguised himself as a student to gain access to the school.
San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen on Friday shared a message the gunman had written before the shooting on Thursday morning. It included a timeline of what the gunman had planned.
Christesen called the shooting at Aztec High School a cowardly act and that the shooter was determined to create as much carnage as he could.
Authorities said the gunman lived with his parents in Aztec and had worked at a gas station. In his message, he wrote that work, school and life was bad and he wanted out.
David Stone tells The Associated Press that he heard multiple gunshots before his teacher ushered him and his classmates into a closet.
Heaven Angelica Hughes said her classroom was next door from the shooting and bullets came into her room, nearly hitting a classmate.
20:34 FBI says it investigated New Mexico school shooter last year about online comments; he said he had no plans for attack.
