2 Students Killed In Shooting At New Mexico High School

(CNN) - The 21-year-old man who shot and killed two students at Aztec High School in New Mexico on Thursday had previously been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for online comments about planning a mass shooting.

Atchison entered the school with students, and went to a second floor bathroom to prepare for the shooting. The suspected shooter also died.

"If things go according to plan, today would be when I die", Atchison's note begins.

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

"There were several acts of bravery by staff members, teachers and students that were wonderful... that actually saved lives", Governor Martinez said.

US Sen. Martin Heinrich, a Democrat, said he was distraught to learn of the shooting and called for action to address the "epidemic of gun violence" in America. They said Atchison had planned the shooting and warned people of killing students on social media prior to the shooting.

Aztec Police responded to an 8:00 am call, shortly after classes started.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says several acts of bravery helped save lives during a deadly shooting at a small-town high school.

"I was in the classroom and we heard..." "I'm proud of the team we have here and the cooperation of the law enforcement".

Sheriff Ken Christesen confirms the shooting at Aztec High School on Thursday morning.

Martinez told reporters that teachers, school staff and law enforcement jumped in quickly to prevent more deaths.

"It's disgusting - it's a great community and we love this place", she tells PEOPLE. "There's a lot of healing that needs to take place".

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.

Some news reports had said that more than a dozen people were injured, but Harcrow says those reports may be erroneous and that additional casualties have not been confirmed. He says the shooter also was dead but didn't say if the suspect was among the three.

The school is in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation.

"I just can't believe this happened in our community", said Garrett's mother, Sabrina Montoya. According to a statement from the Navajo Nation Office of the President and Vice President, 15 other people were injured in the horrific shooting. Those reports were false. We do have officers located at all of the schools in Bloomfield and they are all on lock down.

Francisco served on the Aztec Police Department, San Juan County Sherriff's Department, and Farmington Police Department.
