3 Dead, 6 Injured After Gunman Opens Firing In New Maxico City On Monday

A shooter opened fire in a community in northwest New Mexico on Monday (local time), leaving at least three people dead and six others injured.

Two police officers were reportedly among those hurt in the event, which happened in a Farmington, New Mexico, neighbourhood, roughly 180 miles (290 km) northwest of Albuquerque.

During a news conference to discuss the event, the police stated that the 18-year-old gunman was later shot and killed outside of a church.

According to Shanice Gonzales, a spokesman for the Farmington Police Department, the suspect had stalked on foot for roughly a quarter of a mile. He then opened fire on onlookers. He was confronted by law enforcement officers a short while afterwards.

According to authorities, the two injured officers—one from the Farmington authorities Department and the other from the New Mexico State Police—were both reported at San Juan Regional Medical Centre as being in stable condition.

In a statement, Mayor Nate Duckett noted that although both had been shot, their wounds were not life-threatening.

It was unknown how the injured citizens were feeling.

Farmington, a population of around 46,000 people, saw security lockdowns at multiple public schools due to the gun violence until authorities judged there was no longer a danger to the public.

The borders of New Mexico with Colorado, Utah, and Arizona are not far from Farmington. Downtown has seen the emergence of cafes and breweries in recent years, joining long-standing shops that sell Native American items including silver jewellery and wool weavings.
