Governor Says Teacher Ended NM School Shooting

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says a boy shot by a classmate at their middle school underwent a second surgery and a girl who was wounded is now in stable condition.

Martinez said at a press conference late Tuesday that the girl has been identified as 13-year-old Kendal Sanders. The wounded boy is in critical condition.

Authorities say the two were shot when a 12-year-old boy opened fire at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell on Tuesday morning.

Martinez says the boy pointed the gun at a teacher, who talked him into dropping the weapon. The boy was taken into custody.

New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas said late Tuesday that the shooter used a .22-gauge shotgun. He says they're investigating where he got the gun and have issued search warrants for the boy's home and his bag and locker.
