News - Inside Edition Staff

At least three people are dead after a gunman reportedly opened fire in a New Mexico high school Thursday morning.

Two of the victims are believed to be students. The suspect was also killed.

"The families of the victims were notified immediately. No other injuries are reported at this time," the San Juan County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post.

School authorities said the campus was being evacuated at about 9 a.m. local time. By 10 a.m., a post from the nearby Bloomfield, N.M., police advised that the school was no longer on lockdown and parents were told to pick up their children at a designated location.

"It’s tragic when our children are harmed in violent ways especially on school campuses. We express our condolences to those families who have been harmed," Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye said. "Our prayers go out to all those affected by this tragedy and everyone throughout San Juan County. We are asking for prayers for these families."
