ROSWELL, N.M. — Officials in southern New Mexico say at least two children are being treated for injuries following a shooting at a Roswell middle school.

Brooke Linthicum of Eastern New Mexico Regional Medical Center says the two were brought in following the shooting at Berrendo Middle School, but she had no information on the type or extent of their injuries.

Roswell police say the suspected shooter was arrested Tuesday and the school has been placed on lockdown.

Roswell has been rocked by gang violence in recent years and has asked Homeland Security Investigations to step in and help. Word of the shooting was posted on the Roswell Police Department's Facebook page.

Police say children will be bused to a nearby mall where parents can pick up them up.
