BREAKING: At Least One Student Shot At Albuquerque High School

Albuquerque, NM – Albuquerque police said at least one person was shot at West Mesa High School on Friday morning.

The incident occurred on Feb. 25 near the east end of the high school’s football field, near 64th Street and Fortuna, Inside Eko reported.

The first officers who arrived on the scene said they found a person who was suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds.

A witness told KOAT that he saw an injured student on the ground at the scene.

He said that he saw first responders rush to the student and try to resuscitate him.

Police have confirmed that someone has been shot but have not yet released any additional details, nor have they confirmed that the victim was a student, KRQE reported.

Neither the identity nor the medical condition of the person who was shot have been released.

The school was put into a shelter-in-place status after the incident and had just started posting updates to social media to provide parents with information about where they could pick up their students when they suddenly changed it up and asked parents to wait.

The shelter-in-place was lifted again a few minutes later and seemed to be causing much confusion.

Police have not said whether there are any suspects or if there have been any arrests.
