       Shooter among dead in New Mexico high school shooting

William Atchison shot dead Casey Jordan-Marquez and Francisco Fernandez at the Aztec High School in Aztec, New Mexico, on Thursday (7 December).

Casey Jordan Marquez and Francisco Fernandez, both 17, were killed in the shooting. There were no other injuries.

Wade did not specify what Atchison wrote, but said it was something along the lines of: "If you're going to commit a mass shooting, does anyone know about cheap assault rifles?" But he said they determined no crime had been committed at that time.

Authorities in New Mexico today identified the 21-year-old, saying that in a carefully-planned attack Atchison sneaked in the school pretending to be a current student before opening fire.

It was unclear what connection, if any, Atchison had to the school.

A former Aztec school board member who went by the scene shortly after it unfolded and said this is absolutely unheard of in their small community.

"He had no chance to survive the encounter", Kassetas said about Fernandez.

Police said the two victims were not specific targets.

"She'd love to see everybody here", Marquez's grandfather said.

Legendary actor Shashi Kapoor passes away at the age of 79
By July 1958, Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal had got married after facing initial resistance from Jennifer's family. The actor, who has been ill for a long time, breathed his last at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai .

"This person is not only a coward, he is evil", Christesen said.

Students and teachers had to barricade themselves in classrooms, but after failing to kill anyone else he turned the gun on himself. He then allegedly fired multiple rounds through the hallway.

The suspect exited the computer lab into the hallway, at which point police believe he took his own life, Kassetas said. When officers found his body he had a thumb drive on him that laid out his plans to shoot up the school and then kill himself. A message was written less than two hours before the incident.

"Go somewhere and gear up, then hold a class hostage and go apes-, then blow my brains out".

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

The students all had to hide until they were told by officials to walk out of the room toward the parking lot, he said. "I just want out of this s--". "This is all a terrible feeling".

"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.

Police have not disclosed the shooter's identity, however, they have confirmed that hes a man. Authorities also would not confirm whether or not the shooter was a student or if there was a motive.
