A gunman has opened fire at a New Mexico school in the US, critically injuring at least two pupils before being taken into custody.
Information from nurses treating the boy indicates he was the shooter's target, hospital spokesman Eric Finley said. There were also reports that a male pupil was shot in the face.
The gunman opened fire at Berrendo Middle School as classes were starting for the day. Roswell police say the school was placed on lockdown, and the suspected shooter was arrested. Age and other details on the gunman were not immediately released.
