Several people were reportedly wounded when a person opened fire at a northern New Mexico school Thursday morning.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office told local media about the shooting at Aztec High School in Aztec, N.M., about 180 miles north of Albuquerque.

On Facebook, the sheriff’s office asked people to “please avoid the area.”

“Aztec High School is locked down and being evacuated. Please avoid the area. Parents can stage at 516 and Mesa Verde near the church to pick up their kids. We will update this as we learn more,” the post said.
