3 dead, 15 hurt in New Mexico high school shooting

Sheriff: Deputies called to shooting at high school in Aztec

Though the shooting at Aztec High School was confirmed by the San Juan County Sheriff's Office, there are still conflicting number of casualties.

The Pentagon says it found a "troubling" number of failures this year by the military services to alert the Federal Bureau of Investigation to criminal history information. Authorities in New Mexico said on Twitter that the shooter was among the the deceased.

San Juan Sheriff's Office Capt. Brice Current said the families of the shooting victims have been notified. It wasn't immediately clear if the shooting happened inside the school, who was suspected of firing the shots and what condition the wounded were in.

"No other injuries reported", state police said in a tweet Thursday. "Please avoid the area".

The school was placed on lockdown as everyone was evacuated.

Aztec High School is about 180 miles northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
