ROSWELL, N.M. — Two children were taken to a hospital after a report of a shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell, New Mexico, a spokeswoman for the hospital said Tuesday.

They were taken to Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, where their conditions were not immediately available, she said.

The state Department of Public Safety said in a news release that state and local police were called to the school at 8:11 a.m. and that “there are preliminary reports of injury,” though their number and extent were not immediately known.

State Police Public Information Officer Emmanuel Gutierrez said the threat had been “alleviated” and children were being bused from the school.

The Roswell Police Department’s Facebook page said a suspect has been apprehended.

The Facebook post by Roswell police said the school was placed on lockdown after the shooting.

    And you wonder where kids get the idea. News is a big FAIL in our current society. Twitter & Facebook ruining lives since DAY 1. Social media…the drug of the nation.

    Gotta be a fake news story … after all, this school was designated a “gun-free zone.” Surely no criminal would break the law, and carry a weapon into it. Thank you, liberals, for protecting us with so many “gun-free zones.”
