Two dead, four injured in shooting at New Mexico library


Two people were killed and four others were wounded when a gunman opened fire Monday afternoon inside a public library in Clovis, N.M. A lone male suspect is in custody, police say, but his motive remains unclear.

Speaking at a hastily arranged news conference Monday evening, Clovis Mayor David Lansford credited the city’s police department for its quick and immediate response, saying, “This could’ve been much worse, but because of their training and their expertise and their courage, it was kept at a minimum.”


The shooting occurred around 4:15 p.m. local time. Police Chief Douglas Ford said during the news conference that two females had been killed, and two males and two females were injured. The injured were transported to a hospital across the state line in Lubbock, Tex., the Reuters news agency reported.

Officials have not provided names or ages for the victims or the alleged shooter, pending notification of their families.

Ford said the alleged gunman did not exchange fire with authorities and surrendered immediately when confronted. He did not resist arrest, the chief said. Police then swept the building to ensure there were no other threats, The Washington Post reported.
