As we here at The Goldwater told you yesterday, a terrible shooting took place in a public library in the city of Clovis, New Mexico. You can find that article here:
Police have now released more information on the shooter. It would appear that a 16-year-old boy has been accused of being the gunman in that fatal shooting spree.
With sadness in their heart, the police department also informed the public that the two deceased women, 61-year-old Wanda Walters and 48-year-old Christina Carter were both lifelong employees at the library.
Clovis Police Chief Douglas spoke to a shocked public as he said: "Our two deceased were family to the city of Clovis."
According to him, the suspect will now face two first-degree murder charges, no less than four charges of assault with intent to commit a violent felony (of which four for aggravated battery, and one charge of child abuse). The 16-year old carried two handguns, but as to where he had procured the weapons, the Clovis police had to take a guess at this point in time.
Police are also looking into the teen's social media activities in order to find any clue as to what led to this terrible crime.
Meanwhile, at the University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, the resident Chief Medical Officer Mike Ragain had some information on the wounded. The 10-year-old victim would be in "satisfactory condition" whilst the other three surviving adults remain in "serious condition."
Three of the four injured victims were 20-year-old Alexis Molina, her 10-year-old brother, and 53-year-old Howard Jones. The fourth victim has request privacy. His details have not been released to the general public.
The doctor declared that "The child is in the best condition. He still had an injury that required treatment. Anytime someone survives a shooting, it is traumatic."
As always, we here at the Goldwater will keep you updated.
