A shooter opened fire at a middle school in New Mexico on Tuesday, seriously wounding at least two teenage students before being taken into custody, police and hospital officials said.

A student at Berrendo Middle School, which serves students in grades six through eight, told the Albuquerque Journal that he had seen another student carrying a gun, and then saw a boy get shot. But authorities could not confirm the identity of the shooter.

The two injured students from the school, which was placed on lockdown after the shooting, were taken to a local hospital, where they were stabilized before being transferred to another facility, said Brooke Linthicum, a hospital spokeswoman. (Reuters)
