A witness says the gunman in a school shooting in the south-eastern New Mexico city of Roswell was a student.
The shooter wounded two students at Berrendo Middle School today before being taken into custody.
Hospital spokesman Eric Finley says information from nurses treating the boy indicates he was the shooter's target.
A student who witnessed the shooting says the shooter was a boy who she thought was being bullied. Eighth grader Odiee Carranza says it happened in the school gym. She says the boy shot the 14-year-old twice in the face, and shot the girl in the arm.
She says the boy then fired a shot into the sky before dropping the gun. A teacher then grabbed him.
