At least three people died and more than a dozen were injured after a gunman opened fire at a northern New Mexico high school Thursday morning, law enforcement officials say.

San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen told reporters that three people believed to be students died Thursday at Aztec High School. He said the shooter also was dead but didn't say if the suspect was among the three.

The school is located in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation, about 180 miles north of Albuquerque.

"It's a tragic when our children are harmed in violent ways especially on school campuses. We express our condolences to those families who have been harmed," Russell Begaye, president of the Navajo Nation, said in a press release.

No additional information was provided on the condition of those injured, KOB reported.

It wasn't immediately clear if the shooting happened inside the school, who was suspected of firing the shots and what condition the wounded were in.

Authorities said they had cleared all the buildings at the school and that students were boarding buses to another location where they could be reunited with their parents

On Facebook, law enforcement asked people to “avoid the area” while they secured the scene.

“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.

Farmington Municipal Schools wrote on Facebook all schools in the district went into preventive lockdown due to the incident.

“We have no reason to think there is any threat in Farmington at this time, but we are taking this advance action in order to secure all of our schools. Your students’ safety is our primary concern,” the statement said.

In nearby Bloomfield, police said local schools were also lockdown as a precaution
